Hi Julien,

Could you describe your use-case for this bulk cut function?

Is this bulk cut function destructive (ie. it deletes content from your
org files permanently) - wouldn't archiving (to another file) give you
the same end result for your org file but also allow searching for the
old content alter in case you archive (cut) too early or find you need
to dig into some old history for a project.
