I did this first but instinctively guessed that there must be another
way of selecting multiple extensions.  Then I misread the
documentation in my sense concluding that it should be possible to do
this also interactively and therefore assumed a bug.

With my half-baked but working solution I got then too carried away,
thank you for your explanations and please close this "bug" report.

You're right, this would be a new feature and I don't want to burden
somebody to implement this only minor improvement in all its
generality.
Maybe I'll improve my change at one stage in the future and'll submit it again.
