Feature requests: more “Don’t show again”; select 2+ folders

I have multiple folders I want to apply the same rules to so I created a rule sync setting (.hazelrules file) to apply to each folder. This is taking more steps than I think it should.

What I am doing:
    1. Add a folder
    2. Right-click > Rule Sync Settings…
    3. Click “Use existing sync file”
    4. Click “Continue” On alert dialogue
    5. Select sync file
    6. Click “Done”
    7–99. Repeat steps 1-6 for each folder
How it should work:
    1. Add all folders at once (all added folders are selected)
    2. Right click > Rule Sync Settings…
    3. Click “Use existing sync file”
    4. Select sync file
    5. Click “Done”
So this requires three improvements:
    1. Add multiple folders at one time
    2. Select multiple folders in Folders pane
    3. Allow us to tell Hazel not to show the Sync Warning alert again.

Can you describe your setup where you would need the same rule for that any folders (or why you have that many folders)? Are the folders under a common folder?
