It might be possible, however, to (1) make a command that tags each
entry with :MARK: (similar to marking in dired -- you don't need this,
but would add completeness) (2) make a command that tags /matching/
items (you need this) and (3) make a command that moves all marked
entries (using org-refile).

Thus, it could be a generic marking mechanism like dired, and it could
work for the outline in addition to the agenda.

Not that that helps you :).

Both of these would be killer features IMHO.  This type of UI in mutt
(tagging messages) is great for dealing with large amounts of items.

I tried to figure out the best way to do this a couple months ago,
but it was a little over my head for my level of elisp proficiency.
Ideally, I wanted to show all of the data about to be moved in a
separate frame, as there is totally the possibility of destroying a
large amount of data in this way.

Bulk action is now implemented in the agenda (org-mode 6.28,
jeleased a few minutes ago).  I don't think we need it in the
outline - if you go through to mark many entries with a tag
or so, you can then use an agenda search to find the marked
entries and execute the bulk action from the agenda.
