ScreenCast #2:

We talked a bit on IRC about how to avoid having to pre-generate all the
snippets. I guess one idea is to supply a shell command that generates the
snippet, Which is then inserted by the plugin. I am trying to come up with
a syntax for that. Perhaps an additional key to the dict will do?

 {mutableString = 'foo'; suggestions = (...) ; shell = { start = 'ruby -e
\' '; end = '\'';}; }

and then the plist version of whatever was selected gets inserted between
start and end? perhaps an optional middle key that tells what key-value
from the returned list to insert?

Perhaps someone can come up with a better key-name than shell.
