[texworks] Command Completion

Is there going to be some mechanism for including macros (keyboard or  
otherwise) in texworks? The reason I ask is that the Command  
Completion file includes bullets in arguments and it would be nice to  
have a macro that finds and selects the next bullet so ou can jump  
from argument to argument or to the end of completed environments.  
With TeXshop there were two Applescript macros (find forward/backward  
and select bullet) that accomplished that task.

To get fancier, see the version of TeXShop I generated with internal  
commands that allow completions to have descriptions of the arguments.  
If you wish you can play with it as TeXShop218-svn(HS).zip at <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2 
 >. It's, of course, Mac only and also only has the English  

Finally, another enhancement that would work cross platform is to  
include latexmk and typesetting ``engines'' so that bibliography and  
index generation cross references, etc., are automatically generated.

Good Luck,
