I do that all the time (seriously!). I rather often have a string in 
Mail, Terminal, OmniWeb, or TextMate and want to search for that string 
in one or more of the other programs.  Having command-e/command-g work 
across applications is really something I can't live without today! But 
I've seen Classic users actually claim that TM was buggy because of it

I won't make it sticky, but I'll add to the to-do that it should only
