Lightroom: Add "Edit in" > "Open as linked object in Photoshop"

"Linked objects" in Photoshop
are particularly useful when creating collages containing a large number of images.Such PS files quickly grow into several GB in size if they are loaded using “Openedas smart objects ..” or “Open as layers in Photoshop” while if they are loeaded using LinkedObjects the file size remains manageable. However, I have not found any way to create linked objects straight fromLR. In PS it is very cumbersome and time consuming to create each linked objectlayer manually searching for the right files in physical catalogue structure inthe file browser searching for the right file name or tiny thumbnails one byone. A very time saving feature would be if LR could add a new choice under"Edit in ..." namely “Open as linked object in Photoshop.  This way a whole collection could be opened inone operation.  Preferably on should begiven the choice to either lead each image as separate PS files or as a stackof layers in one PS file.
