Hi Adam,

Another approach, and this is my personal preference, would be to
allow "sub-keymaps", so that e.g. I could press C-c C-a s and it would
present me with a further menu of single keystrokes bound to custom
agenda commands:

   C-c C-a s 1    search for :sub10:  (10 minute tasks)
   C-c C-a s 2    search for :sub120: (2 hour tasks)
   C-c C-a s 3    search for :sub30:  (30 minute tasks)
   C-c C-a s 4    search for :sub40:  (4 hour tasks)


I think this is an interesting idea.  Now here is something
interesting:  When I have implemented the various interfaces
where you use single keys to select something, I usually implemented the
customization so that people have to configure *characters*.
For some inexplicable reason, in org-agenda-custom commands it is strings,
so that it is actually easy to extend this.  So I tried on the
train today.  The change is not trivial, so I was wondering if you would
like to do somme beta testing before this gets out into the wild:

Assuming you will, I am attaching my development version.

What you can do here:

- Add a desscription string after the key,

(setq org-agenda-custom-commands '(("x" "My power cmd" tags-todo .....)))

- Use keys that are more that one character, the first characters become
  prefix characters.  Like

  (setq org-agenda-custom-commands
        '(("ha" nil tags "+HOME+Adam")
          ("hb" nil tags "+HOME+Bastien")
          ("hc" nil tags "+HOME+Carsten")))

I would be interested if this is all stimm compatible with
your previous customization (it should be) and if you indeed find it
