One is VCS operations. We want to commit, say 5 files, in one
commit action. That's atomic commit. Without multiple selection,
user should commit 5 times and there will be 5 changed revisions.

Also for common build managers, user may want to remove
multiples of items from project. It is annoying to invoke context
menu 5 times to remove 5 files.
