[GNC-dev] Multi-account actions

I have 2 PRs that I submitted for multi-account actions.
With these PRs, the user can select multiple accounts in the main 
account view, then:
- Delete multiple accounts in one shot,
- Edit multiple accounts in one shot (change the notes, the flags, the 
color, the currency, or move them to a different parent).

I also want to add a "duplicate" action where the user can duplicate the 
selected account(s).

All this of course isn't very useful if you already have your account 
tree and you never change it. But it's very useful, in my view if you 
need to setup your account tree or if you regularly need to add accounts.
Also, it's part of an effort to make GC more user friendly, offering 
features that are common in nearly all software (select multiple, then 
do something).

I'm afraid that these PR will just be ignored, because some of the devs 
just don't look favorably upon them (John for example).

I'd like to ask devs to chime in on that. My argument is that
- It makes the user's life easier.
- It adds a feature to GC that is expected in most software (of any 
kind), select multiple then do something.
