Lightroom: Instant Collection building by pasting list of filenames

Here is a feature idea that I would love to see: the ability for LR user to simply input a list of filenames into LR (maybe after cut-and-paste from an email, etc.) and LR would immediately gather those images and create a Collection. Voila. Having received so many selection lists from clients by email, this would totally rock and save me --- and likely many others - lots of time.

You can simulate this with a smart collection right now.

Though, honestly, the less I have to work with file names and folders, the happier I am.
