 There are times where deleting many single items is necessary, but the
 bulk edit interface isn't desirable. For these situations, it might be
 nice to have a Shift + Delete interface, that bypasses the warnings and
 sends items straight to being permanently deleted.

 bbPress is my current example of this, where it's not uncommon to want to
 cherry-pick several topics/replies for different bulk actions in the same
 view, or mass-delete topic tags where dozens of spam tags exist and
 clicking "Delete" in every action-row brings up a dedicated prompt.

 Yes, you can check the boxes and use Bulk Edit to delete them, but UX wise
 that approach requires a bit more planning than you usually want to do
 when you're in cleanup mode. It isn't comfortable to queue up a bunch of
 internal todo's just to moderate a queue of topics & replies, but it does
 feel comfortable to have identified something needing doing, and to be
 able to do that think as quickly as possible.
