Stacking Modules (little things)

As now time has come to rebalancing utility modules, I want to rise topic of UI of said modules.

When player does use a ship with several identical utility modules, player should have an option to activate a set of said modules all at once, with one click, like we do that with guns.

Current situation:

1) I'm In a logi.

I want to set up a cap chain. I have to click on 2 transfers for just one action (feed cap)
I want to rep my buddy, I've bought my shiny Nestor for it, but I have to click on up 7 reps for just one action (rep the target)

2) I'm in a neut ship.

I have to press up 7 neuts in my geddon for just one action (neut the guy)

3) I'm in a support ship.

Dumps/TDs/ECM/remote ECCM/Sebo etc. etc.etc.

4) I'm gate camping.

I still have to press my X Sebos/Tracking comps/Webs/Warp Disruptors/Scramblers one by one, for just one action.

Yeah, good luck with pressing that 8 smartbombs when that buddy lands on gate.

I have asked for this many times.....
I think it is in the works someday (not even soon)

also, you are aware that for most of these modules (smartbombs dependent on use, webs & scrams not included) that it's generally more effective to stagger the use of these modules - especially reps, cap xfer/neut and ECM?

edit: I forgot to say -
+1 give us the choice!

For posting an idea into F&I: come up with idea, try and think how people could abuse this, try to fix your idea - loop the process until you can't see how it could be abused, then post to the forums to let us figure out how to abuse it..... If your idea can be abused, it [u]WILL[/u] be.

While I agree stacking some new things would be good, like SEBOs, damps, neuts, maybe some others...

This quote doesn't help your credibility. Smartbombers don't seem to have any problem activating their smartbombs.
