I wouldn't call iotop as easy to use at powertop. And the latter

And because it had those nice 'press X to turn off Y' hints.

I've been looking at the existing system tap scripts lately for that and most of them weren't aimed at that from what i could tell. I'm probably going to rework one of them to basically do what powertop does for disk io as i'm less interested in kb/sec reads and writes but more in read/write operations per minute per process.
