Right, I keep forgetting there are people who like using menus and the 
mouse. :-)
I just realized that a snippet could have both a key equivalent and a 
tab trigger. Maybe then it would make sense to also bind all those 
snippets to the same key equivalent, maybe in fact Ctrl-Shift-W, in 
addition to their tab triggers? This way the user can select the text, 
and then get to choose from a nice list of all the tags they might want 
to wrap that text around, or to chose to use a custom tag.

Unless the option of having both a key equivalent and a tab trigger for 
snippets was not the intended behavior/feature, but instead a bug.
