[Bf-committers] UI idea: do operation delete and toggle visibility/select/render on object including all child-objects

Dear developers,

just an idea:

As I know there is currently no functionality to delete and toggle 
visibility/selectability/renderability for an object including all 
child-objects, e. g. an object created out of several parts and put 
together under an empty as the parent. It would be useful to have 
this e. g. in the outliner to toggle the visibility of such a 
multi-part-object or to delete it including all parts.

May it be useful to have such a functionality (I know not for 2.5beta 
now, but in the long run)? Best would IMHO be some click+modifier 
operation and/or menu entries, but for buttons this seems currently 
not possible with the existing handler-structure. I just had a short 
look, but I could not find keyboard modifier information available in 
the button handlers, e. g. the outliner buttons, isn't it?

If I'm wrong and these functionality already exists, please let me 
know (and apologize that I have bothered you with this mail).
