There seems to be no mechanism to set values of multiple nodes in a single
operation. Spec. for 'setvalue' explicitly states that only a single node
can be updated. Similarly, a group of nodes can not be deleted in one shot. 

It would be useful to support such a mode for actions like setvalue and
delete. 

The effect would be similar to applying a given action in a loop on all the
nodes in a nodeset.
