Yes, both shifting by the same amount and setting a fixed date can be
useful. I usually re-schedule leftover todos by shifting them by one
or two working days to the future. So originally I had a bulk version of
`org-agenda-do-date-later' and friends in mind as opposed to
`org-agenda-schedule'. But the latter one would be useful to. Ideally,
S-left, C-cC-s et al. would trigger a bulk shift/bulk schedule whenever
there are marked agenda items.
