[Bf-committers] Assign materials...

This is not something we should do... for several reasons;
- button operations always are on 1 single block only (object, mesh,  
material, etc)
- objects can have multiple materials linked, so what's copied?

If you want to have Materials links copied to selected objects, the  
CTRL+L menu in 3d window will do it for you. Here the menu is  
appropriate, and fits in context (meaning, a 3d window is aware of  
selections, a buttons window isn't)
