Description

QGIS geoalgorithms->Vector general tools->Build virtual vector
To allow the selection of vector files.

Similarly to gdalbuildvrt (Raster->Miscellaneous->Build Virtual Raster (Catalog) Or GDAL->Miscellaneous->Build Virtual Raster), which allows for selecting shape files.

'Build virtual vector' does not allow selecting files. At the moment the user has to open all layers. For many tiles based vectors (e.g. shape files or any other format) can be time consuming if not impossible (exceeds system resources).

This tool was introduced to override a problem using gdal/ogr commands that accept only a single filename as input. Were not possibile to pass a multiple list of files.
The virtual layer would be a collection of layer. So probably it works correctly with this point of view.

btw, I'll be with the person who commited this feature next week... I hope he can add some more comments here
