Saving some effort:

  Something like (faint memory):
    SELECT <file-spec> <command>

  Brought up a scrolling text list of the matching files which could
  be cursored among and tagged/untagged with SPACE.  Hitting ENTER
  ran the provided command on all tagged entries.

  That alone under bash would remove 90% of my need/wish for a file
  manager (I faintly understand you can do something not entirely
  dissimilar under zsh, but I haven't looked into that yet).
