JKP> Well there is a "secret" trick. You can drag your selection to a
JKP> konsole, and it will dump all the file names then. You can then

JKP> move them to.

I also hope to commit a patch to SVN in the next few days that I wrote a
while ago that allows you to select a bunch of files and then run a
command on them.  I frequently run something like "cp %all ~/tmp", for example.
