I'm a bit disoriented with the new keybinding for `s' -- I got used 
to it the same way I'm used to `C-x C-s'.  

Also, I think it would be nice to make this "bulk action" feature more
consistent with bulk action mechanisms from other packages like dired,
buff-menu.el or bookmark-mode.el.

Here is how the keys are mapped on various modes:

| key | dired  & bookmark-mode & buff-menu | Org           |
|-----+------------------------------------+---------------|
| m   | mark                               | month view    |
| u   | unmark                             |               |
| d   | mark for deletion                  | day view      |
| D   | delete marked                      | include diary |
| x   | perform actions                    | exit agenda   |
| U   | unmark (only in dired)             | [unset]       |

I propose to use [dmuUx] the same way in Org.  We could move the daily,
weekly, monthly view to respectively D,W,M.

This would discard the diary inclusion (currently on 'D') and the
display of the Moon's phases (currently on 'M') -- not sure whether a
lot of people use this anyway, and these commands can still find key
bindings. 

I like 'U' from dired, it's very convenient to be able to delete all
marks at once (I which this could be implemented in buff-menu.el and
bookmark-mode as well...)

Carsten, what do you think?
