Description

This is one thing I think mc has been missing.

Currently, to select many files/folders, you have to press 'Insert' many times, which is laborious. I think it would be a great improvement if blocks of adjacent files/folders could be selected, possibly by holding Ctrl and pressing the up/down arrow keys.

Probably the best way to implement this would be to select the first file/folder of a desired block, then select the last file/folder of the block with Ctrl-Insert or Ctrl-mouseclick, and all the files/folders in between would automatically be selected.
