Setting download directory for multiple torrents should be easier.

Description

In the "Add Torrents" dialog, it should be easier to select multiple torrents and set their "Download Location" at once (instead of having to apply the "Download Location" to all torrents with the "Apply To All" button).

The current method works just fine. If you could provide an alternative method, that would be a much more useful ticket.

I thought this was quite obvious: You select multiple torrents in the list, then you modify the "Download Location" and voila, Deluge should then set the configured "Download Location" for all selected torrents.

Can it get easier than that? Please folks, don't make me laugh.

Sorry for overreacting earlier on.

The original idea was that settings (like the 'Download Location') should be easier to set across multiple torrents. The way it is currently implemented (with the 'Apply To All' button), is a bit limiting, in that you have to apply *all* settings to *all* torrents in the 'Add Torrents' list.

If the selecting multiple torrents feature is to be implemented, it would be neat if it works for both the 'Files' and the 'Options' tab in the 'Add Torrents' dialog. That is, in the 'Files' tab it should show the files from all the selected torrents, and in the 'Options' tab it should display the settings that are equivalent across the selected torrents.

For the 'Files' tab, this feature would be relatively easy to implement.

For the 'Options' tab, Deluge should display nothing in setting fields that have nonequivalent values across the selected torrents. When the user modifies a setting field it should modify the setting for all selected torrents. And for drop-down settings, you could display 'Setting name (X out of Y)', where X is the number of torrents which use that setting, and Y the number of selected torrents.

If desired, I can provide some examples (i.e. screenshots).

Please let me know what you think about it.
