Gmail feature request

Is it too much to ask for a “Archive this one and go to Next New Message” type button? I use twice as many clicks as I should have to to read through all my new mailing list message and then go back later, select each one by checking the box, and then archiving. There’s just not a good way to do this that I’m aware of. They keyboard shortcut “y then o” almost does it, but I have my messages sorted with newest and top so “next” actually goes to the next older message – not new ones.

Come on fellow bloggers – if you use Gmail for any more than 5 minutes a day, you know what I’m talking about – let’s make some noise and see if we can’t get Google to listen.
