Non-intuitive behavior of color labeling buttons with selections
My first thought was to report this as a bug, but it's maybe done intentionally, so turning to feature request.
In lighttable view, select a bunch of images with mixed color labeling, for example some with red label and some without. Then press the red button in the bottom row: those that were red become unlabeled, and vice versa.I think a better behavior would be:
- if all selected images are red-labeled: delete it
- if at least one image in the selection hasn't the red label, just modify those and leave the rest untouched.

There is a good reason to keep the current behaviour: Applying the same color label a second time has an undo-effect, therefore you can easily revert a color label applied by accident (which can occur easily if you use shortcuts and forgot to remember which F-key maps to $color). The proposed behaviour makes color label changes non-recoverable.
