Batch Share Thumbnails via the API

We've gotten a feature request to be able to batch process the sharing of thumbnails from the API.

Currently, the share_thumbnail() method is not supported as a batch process.

Please weigh in to let us know what you think of this feature.

    I can see how this would be useful. We just started shoving our render jobs into a Shotgun custom entity and I was thinking of using the thumbnail as a progress indicator. It would be insane to generate and upload a new progress bar image every time the job status changes, but it might just work to pre-generate and upload a set of progress bar images, then just share the appropriate one when the status changes. That could still (potentially) be hundreds of share_thumbnail calls per second. Having a batch request_type would be the missing piece.
