No, if multi-select is enabled, it seems silly to add another button.
Alternatively, one could simply type in the name of a directory and have
the chooser recognise that as adding all the files therein.  That may be
harder to implement than it is to think about, though... I have no idea.

Anyway, thanks for taking thought to my... thought.
