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.

I am not so sure about this last point.  I am not a
fan of automatic bulk action if several items are selected.

- these lists can become long, and selected entries might
 be off the screen
- for this to make sense, selected entries should remain
 selected after action, increasing the danger of unwanted action
- you might be in the process of selecting some entries, when you
 want to do a quick action on an individual entry you come across.
 But you cannot, because any action will act on all selected ones.

So I do prefer a special command like "B" to introduce bulk action.

I undecided on this, too. Automagically working on marked entries should
they exists seems more natural to me but you are right more dangerous,
too. So I'm perfectly with you except that I'd say that marked entries
should be unmarked after the action.

The reason why I said they would have to stay marked is that when
you use S-right to reschedule, you want to be able to repeat
this command several times to reach the desired date.....

OK, settled, we will use the special command.
