FWIW, we mostly need someone to actually implement many of the nice 
Journal designs [1] - somebody has already put some thought into the 
design, but so far nobody had time to implement it.

FWIW (i.e. probably not much), my "Janitor" (*) activity prototype [2] 
already does both of these. I tried to keep close to the Journal design 
for multiple selection [3], but needed to postpone it because even after 
several hours of fighting with GTK I didn't even get the header colors 
to match. :-/
You can try out the activity without fear for your data, BTW: the 
"Erase" action currently only removes the entry from the list, but not 
the data store. For the "real" thing I'll probably use some kind of 
Commit button to execute all queued changes and provide Undo/Redo 

(*) I'm aware the name is a noun, not a verb. Until I come up with a 
better one this is the working title; suggestions are quite welcome.
