Enhance Deletion of Company Records

It's great that I can now delete records from the Company object, so thank you for that.


It's a little painful.

1,  I have to select the check box next to each record.   I was hoping I could apply a filter and check the "all records" box in the upper left corner and it would delete all of them.  It doesn't.  It selects all 50 records on that page, but then I have to manually click to move to the next page, and click the "all records" on that page as well....and so on.   So it takes a lot of effort if I want to delete company records "in bulk"

2.  It's sloooooow.   I selected approximately 200 records 60 minutes ago, and the Total Record Count is STILL decrementing.  I realize it says in the pop-up "The delete process may take some time" but that feels like a bit of an understatement, considering I can delete records in custom tables much more quickly than this.   

3. I'm not clear on whether or not I'll get a "job complete" email.  The doc doesn't say.  UPDATE: I did not get any such notification, so I have no idea when it completed or can determine how many records were actually deleted.  Would be good to be notified when the purge is completed.
