[Konsole-devel] protection from pasting many lines?

Comments at http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=165923 made me think of 
a feature request, but I seem to recall this one may be out there. So 
before I add it to b.k.o maybe someone can remind me if it's already filed?

Basically, I was thinking it would be nice if konsole provided 
command-execution-protection ala ksirc/others. IOW, if more than one 
line is pasted, ask the user if they know what they're doing. I suspect 
multi-line commands are rare enough that this wouldn't be intrusive 
(maybe have a modifier key to disable the behavior?), but would save me 
from forgetting that I've selected a big block of text since the command 
I want to paste.

For single lines, the current behavior is OK (in fact, some will recall 
I argued to get KDE3's behavior back here ;-) ).
