Bulk metadata download

In calibre I can either go into the edit metadata screen for a book and download metadata & covers in there - I can then do nothing else with calibre for a period of time while it searches.
Alternatively I can bulk download metadata, but then I get no chance to eyeball it (unless I've missed something), which risks getting the wrong book matched.

Is it possible, and if not could i request/suggest am enhancement to allow:

1) Non-modal edit metadata screens so that you can edit the data for multiple books concurrently.
OR
2) A change to the metadata download tool that performs the search in the background, but then gives you the opportunity to review the data downloaded and apply it or not.

Thanks for your consideration.

Tony
