Use Shift + Delete to bypass Trash/Prompt

There are times where deleting many single items is necessary, but the bulk edit interface isn't desirable. For these situations, it might be nice to have a Shift + Delete interface, that bypasses the warnings and sends items straight to being permanently deleted.

bbPress is my current example of this, where it's not uncommon to want to cherry-pick several topics/replies for different bulk actions in the same view, or mass-delete topic tags where dozens of spam tags exist and clicking "Delete" in every action-row brings up a dedicated prompt.

Yes, you can check the boxes and use Bulk Edit to delete them, but UX wise that approach requires a bit more planning than you usually want to do when you're in cleanup mode. It isn't comfortable to queue up a bunch of internal todo's just to moderate a queue of topics & replies, but it does feel comfortable to have identified something needing doing, and to be able to do that think as quickly as possible.
