[TxMt] Macros and Proxies

I've looked all over TM2, but I can't find a way to save a macro once 
I've recorded it. Am I missing it, or is it not yet implemented?  (BTW, 
searching for the word "macro" in a mailing list from "macro"mates.com 
is... unproductive. :-)

And how about proxy commands in bundles? I realize they're in a 
preliminary state now, but is there a list of available actions?  Are 
proxies intended to be the evolution of macros?

What prompted these questions was a search for a way to reassign the 
column-select keystroke. In TM1 I could define a macro to map it to 
something sane, like ^B.  Is there a way (yet) to do something similar 
in TM2?

On a stylistic note, I really would like "Change to Column Selection" to 
be put back into the Edit menu. It's not obvious (at least, not to 
me...) that tapping ALT is the way to do it, and it's not the kind of 
thing you can figure out by experimentation.  I looked all over for how 
to make a column selection in TM2 and finally found it in a blog post.
