Mockup of revdelete with multiple pages

I think Special:RevisionDelete should support revision deletion over multiple
pages from a list of id's specified in the url.

Currently Special:RevisionDelete supports
?title=Special:RevisionDelete&type=revision&ids[2]=1&ids[3]=1&ids[5]=1 if all
those ids are from the same page, anything not on the same title as the first
rev is ignored.

I think something like
?title=Special:RevisionDelete&type=revisions&ids[2]=1&ids[3]=1&ids[5]=1 should
be programmed to work with more than one page at a time.

If that is done then we can provide a form on Special:Contributions similar to
the one on history which allows revdelete on selected revisions.

After reverting all of a user's contributions (pretty easy) I had to revdelete
the content of those revs because they disrupted the wiki (the edits were made
to existing pages so they couldn't be nuked). There were several dozen revs
that I had to revdelete, but because I could only do one page at a time I had
to open up several dozen revision delete pages and submit them separately. It
would have been much better if the contribs page was able to have a series of
checkboxes to allow me to simply check them all off, get sent to
Special:RevisionDelete and then revdelete them all.
