You can mount by wizard many filesystems
(multiselection filechooser). It takes many seconds.
Yes, something should be done, ranging from at least progress cursor
to full progress bar. Adjusting priority and ccing UI guy.
Yes mentioned progress bar could be part of this global
It only depends on agreement that this feature should be
done for the next release.
It depends on Progress API (issue 27403).
First of all, what is the use case for mounting multiple FSes?
If there's no real use case, just disable multiselection.
IMHO if mounting several filesystems takes *multiple seconds* then
that is a simple performance bug - there should be no need for a
progress bar for doing something which consists solely of making a
small change to settings. Has anyone taken the time to run a profiler
on this? What exactly takes so long?
There is a use case (at least in the NB 3.x projects system) -
starting a project with many JAR libraries. People complained loudly
about the lack of multiselection before it was implemented.
No longer relevant for D.
