hi Hans,

Prompted by a "tim" posting (cole not me) email on the list, I thought I'd send in my wish list even though it's not christmas :-) Thanks for the massive improvements you've made already - they save me around 1hr a day, I think! Hope other people are discovering them: Maybe R could have a "tip of the day" bubble, like TextMate :-)

1. Package Manager
a. Allow sort by "loaded"
b. A grep filter would be amazing!

2. Workspace Browser
a. Allow sort by structure (by kb/product of dimensions..?)
b. Allow selection of multiple items
  1. cmd-shift down extends selection
  2. cmd-click extends selection
c. Broom: allow the follow delete behaviors
  1. cmd-click on broom deletes without confirmation
  2. delete key = delete with confirmation
  3. cmd-delete = delete without confirmation

3. Preferences: Quartz
a. Bind “tab” key to  move focus from height->width->pixels fields

Best wishes,
tim bates
