I found myself wanting to edit multiple nodes at once.  But not exactly
the way you are.  Rather, I wanted to edit taxonomy terms and workflow
states for multiple nodes.

The code may be of interest to some of you.  Its in my sandbox here

Anyone interested should read more about it here
<http://dave-cohen.com/node/1044> (which includes a discussion of why I
do not plan to move this code from my sandbox into contrib).
