Speed up bulk deletes

Hello. When I happen to select many files and delete them it takes Win SCP too long to delete them all one by one. At the same time, if I delete them in PuTTY with rm *.* or in mc using multiple selection the deletion is instantaneous. Can you implement multiple deletion using bulk operations, for example by passing rm up to 64 files at once? Response codes do not matter here.

WinSCP deletes directories quickly, but you don't always have to delete a whole directory.

I suppose you want this for SCP protocol, correct?

I'm sorry, but we are not improving SCP protocol implementation anymore.

How about SFTP protocol?
Deleting a directory with a lot of sub-dirs and files is very slow.
It still deletes them one by one.
