I like the idea too ...

perhaps best would be a separate launch window for each "domain", one 
for Commands, one for Snippets, Macros, File Choosing, etc. They would 
each have their own key commands for invocation.  I'm not sure about 
the sub-grouping of commands/snippets, but what does File Chooser do 
about identical filenames in separate project directories?  (I 
obviously haven't played with the beta too much).  Perhaps, descending 
into subdirectories of snippets/commands won't be an issue if File 
Chooser already handles duplicate name conflicts gracefully.
