Enhancement: Enable file operations on search results

Created attachment 158407 Screenshot of search results...
I've been a long-time Gnome-Commander user having previously used Total Commander in the Windows environment. One thing sorely lacking that should be addressed is the ability to do something with the files found through Edit/Search [Alt+F7 -- which incidentally tries to resize the app acreen rather than invoke Search].
Total-Commander offers a "feed to listbox" option by which the files are fed into the active pane, following which a user can choose from a whole host of file operations on the result set eg. delete, mass-rename etc.
The current implementation of Search in Gnome-Commander serves little purpose other than to show matches and/or allow you to navigate to a single file in the results, it doesn't allow you to do anything with the group of matching files.
Please consider adding same capability to Gnome-Commander as there are presently times when I'm forced back to Windows/Samba/Total Commander or a terminal window to do stuff like rename all files matching a search to one common name -- I doubt I'm alone in this.
