Please can we have a multi-click white balance eyedropper in lightroom? So I can click a number of objects within a scene which are close to neutral and take an average.

If I'm white balancing an image I might click on a bit of ceiling, a white shirt collar, a white tablecloth, and they're all close but none of them is quite right. I suspect the average of them may be.

I just tried it manually on challenging mixed lighting images by clicking a number of spots and writing down the WB values, working out the average on paper and plugging in those numbers. Worked really well but obviously not worth the bother unless it can be automatic.
