Sounds similar to the "run last command" requested a few days ago ;)

Actually, you can do a (new) scratch macro where you only run the real
macro -- so that's:
Automation -> Start Macro Recording (option-cmd-M)
Replay Macro -> Some macro
Automation -> Stop Macro Recording (option-cmd-M)
And now you have shift-cmd-M as key equivalent for “some macro”. I know
it's an initial two extra steps, but OTOH it's more general (e.g. also
works with commands).
Not to keen about it currently. When I do real scripting I may add
registers to access (and thus replay) last macro/command etc. so that
this can be a user-extension for those who fancy it.
But I'll think some more about it... giving better access to commands
and macros is something I would like (yes, I know about the drawer,
palette, and toolbar suggestions, but I prefer a (more) keyboard
friendly solution, like having a mini Quicksilver embedded in TM :) ).
