You do that a lot! Want to automate it?

Imagine an IDE that watched your key presses/edit actions. It look for duplication in the stream of actions and say "Hey, are you doing that thing you did before? Do you want me to the rest for you?" humm... Sounds horridly like "you seem to be writing a letter..." arrgh.

ok.. Better... You activate a 'I've done this a couple of times, can you do it for me' function. It suggests a list of things you keep doing. You get to store away auto-macros (as I am now calling them) so you can keep them if they are useful.

The list could be ordered by recent, or popular.

Just a thought

Number one on my IDE's "things you do a lot" list would be pressing backspace! :)
