Yes "Ignore all" sounds better (I did see the missing feature but didn't
think that much about the wording). It's really nice to hear that it's
already on your TODO list.  :-)

Unfortunately I have neither knowledge of the mc source code nor much
time left at the moment so it's quite unlikely that I'll be able to
submit a patch.  :-(
