Thanks a lot for this great tool.
Where can I find documentation for "G", "R", "O", "U" etc? A tooltip  
would be really useful.

One sad critic though (not to GetBundle), if I may (and please,  
consider it a constructive/not polemic one).
I can see four (4) different css bundles, each with something  
interesting but all with duplicated snippets/commands…
Isn't there a way to just "contribute to a bundle instead of re-write  
it again from the ground up?
And now, if I am going to trigger "bg" in a CSS file, which background- 
color completion should I expect to get?
Well you got the scenario.
