This is exactly what am looking for, I can use this, and it seems
incredibly useful; It has a few glitches, like it seems to add stuff
as it loads, and that means that contents shift positions as the loading
Some feedback on how I think this could be improved:
* Alt-Shift-O and Control-Shift-T, seems odd that they would
use different prefixes for a common operation.
* The window would be nicer if it was a little bit larger. On
my machine, I can only see 5 rows of matches,
* When doing a type search it would be useful if the type
search happens not only on the class name, but if it
was able to match also on the full name.
Currently I type FileInfo, but it would be nice if I could
type System.IO.File as I go, because I might not remember
the name of the type, a little bit like the monodoc
type search functionality: it offers more than one slot
for the same name.
