true. still slick, but less eyecandy plus the application doesn't  
lose focus.

but otoh we've already got something like this: just assign the same  
shortcut to multiple commands (i.e. ctrl-shift-a) and you get a  
contextual menu (which, btw. also listens to cursor-keys and jumps to  
the first entry on typing a letter, i.e. to commit a file you press  
ctrl-shift-a, then 's', then 'return')

so the idea for these 'popups' would be, that they're easier to  
configure, i.e. dragging a few commands inside the bundle editor onto  
a palette instead of changing n keyboard shortcuts.

perhaps the bundle editor could get a little 'landing zone' where you  
drag commands to in order to add them to the shelf (as well as a  
'edit...' button to rearrange end edit the shelf)

i think we're getting somewhere here...

best regards,
