It took a while. :-)

Yes, it's nice (but I'd forgotten the shortcut, so thanks). You have to 
edit the full path though, so it isn't a patch on the eclipse version 
(which will sort by filename through all the files in your project). ;-)

The Wing autocomplete and go-to-definition are fantastic features 
though, I appreciate them a great deal. (Thought I'd throw some good 
news in there as well.)

Integrating Bicycle Repair Man support via scripting would be a nice 
interim measure. When we get time at Resolver we'll look into it.

A toolbar for user scripts would be a nice idea. I've never seen it, but 
allegedly Komodo has some feature like this.
