Yes, but this works since Tiger, I mean. If you press e.g. SHIFT+CTRL 
+OPT+J to set your language to "Java Properties"
simply type fast successively  "Java " and press RETURN or wait 1 sec  
and write fast something else.

The issue here is that you cannot press 3 to select the third item  
instead you have to press APPLE+3 to be conform with Snow Leopard.  
Then e.g. you can select an item which begins with 3 by pressing 3 but  
it hasn't to be the third item.
