Description

I always wanted MC to be able to work with pipe-filelist. For example, if we want to view all file from some package:

equery f wget | mc

Command equery in Gentoo prints on stdout list of files belonging to a package.

Another example. Let say we want tar current directory, but we need to skip several files:

find . | mc | tar cf /tmp/t.tar --files-from=-

We can just F8 unneeded files.

MC can detect if its standard input is from pipe or use "-" argument.

Maybe panelize code could be used for this instead VFS?

Thing I'm referring to is exactly the function of external panelize - but I see why you wanted VFS (for F8 not to be real delete).
