[geeklog-devel] Feature Request: ADMIN_list (2 requests)

No, I just want to be able to NAME the checkboxes. Currently they are 
delitem and I need to put two admin lists on the same page and based 
on the setup, it isn't easy to generate unique form urls for the two 
lists. Multiple checkboxes would be a bit insane. (Although being 
able to specify where the check boxes appear would be nice too. :-) )

Adding things through templates only works if I can pass in the name 
of the template to admin_list(). I don't want ALL admin lists to have 
extra buttons.

The extra buttons would go on the same line as the trash can.

All the code changes are basically in my email. You just need to 
search for the lines to make the modifications. If you like, I'll 
send you a full function with my changes and you can compare it that 
way. (I'll have to go look at CVS's lib-admin to make sure I'm not 
losing any important fixes though.)

Basically it would be nice to have something like:
[] data data data
[] data data data
[drop list [v] [GO]

So you could perform actions on several items besides deleting them. 
For example,
[] data data data
[] data data data
Move to folder [drop list of folders [v] [GO]

As much as you don't want to overcomplicate that beast of a function, 
I don't want to clone it and maintain a fork. :-)
