Lightroom: Ability to batch process Photo Merge (HDR and panorama)

Now that we have HDR inside Lightroom, with virtually no user input, the next step is surely a batch facility for a folder full of bracketed images.
Please!!!!

I know this is a familiar note but:  I am a real estate photographer.  Adding batch processing of HDR merges (as well pano merges for my more artistic endeavors) would be a HUGE help!

+1 for batch pano and HDR processing. Agreed, finding a good UI is not as straightforward as what we have now, and the ability to continue working while the actual HDR or pano is being generated is good.

I'd see something like this:
  1. You select the pictures and start a command, like it is nowInstead of generating a preview, it "sends" it to a "in process" space (being a collection, dedicated GUI, ...)
  2. Does the number crunching for the preview in the background. A progress bar for each task would be cool
  3. Once the numers crunched, a dialog box as we know can be opened, or default values can be applied (I'm sure many people just apply all the checkboxes: auto, boundary wrap, stack ...)
  4. Number crunching again in background
  5. Output un a dedicated collection to keep things clear

Still no batch mode in LR. Come on Adobe.

Add my vote for this feature.

I think it could be implemented quite simply. Since we already have auto stack by time, which works reasonably well, we just need to be able to select all stacks and Merge HDR to create one DNG per stack. When more than one stack is selected, the Merge HDR dialog should appear and inform the user: "Photos will be merged per stack. You have selected ### stacks". Then the user sets the settings as appropriate, and the process starts. That would be the easiest solution.
