Provide an easier method to bulk delete actions from a maintenance window

In the course of normal testing/usage of the autonomics functionality of the Db2 Automation Tool or the new Db2 Automation Expert, there are times when too many actions have been added to a maintenance window, and the user needs/wants to prune many of these actions from the window. In large shops this could potentially be hundreds or even thousands of actions that need to removed. The problem is that currently there is no feasible way to do this in either product as they exist now. Today, each action must be individually deleted by hand, which is extremely tedious and time consuming when a large number of actions is involved .

I would like to propose that some type of bulk delete capability be added to allow the user to easily delete many actions from within a maintenance window at once. This could possibly be done with a 'block' delete command, like that typically used in ISPF.
