Now that we can edit records in bulk in the admin using list_editable, it would be nice to be able to add new items in bulk in the same way. Something like a list_editable_extra field on ModelAdmin that works similarly to the extra field on InlineModelAdmin.
What's seems to be needed:
- Set the extra parameter to modelformset_factory in ModelAdmin.get_changelist_formset to generate the empty forms.
- Adapt the result_list template tag in admin_list.py to show the extra forms. This can be done by calling items_for_result with an empty model for each empty form.
- Adapt paginator and actions area to account for the extra rows. Not quite sure how to do this.
