Timeout and deletion of items marked by the Clear tool

When you’re at or near your item limit is a typical time when you may want to use the Clear tool and delete a bunch of junk. Problem is the game is likely already bogged down at this point so Hearthlings trickle in and destroy a few here and there. It takes way too long to rely on them to delete the items.

Would it be possible to set a timeout timer on the batch of items requested to Clear ? So after, say 30 seconds, if a Hearthling hasn’t come by to destroy it them simply have the game clear the items.

Thank you!
