I want to delete multiple rests at once with Ctrl + Delete

Scores converted from PDF may have too many beats.
It is convenient if you can delete them all at once.

The main issue I can see with implementing this is, what is the list contains rests that are in the same measure, on different staves? Depending on how things line up, removing a rest on one staff may leave the rest on the other staff unaffected, or it may delete it entirely, or it may change its duration. So we'd have to be very careful how we handled this. It's unfortunately probably not feasible to check each rest "are you still valid" as we go, because already-deleted rests don't know they've been deleted, and just asking the question is likely to produce a crash.
