I like that, it would also nice to have an easier way to find comment, indent and unindent.

When the ability to pipe the current buffer through an external
command was added (^R ^X M-\), I felt that ^R wasn't the place
I would look if I wanted to filter the current buffer. It would
be better if there were a special Tools menu that contained things
that perform special operations on the current buffer (or region).
This Tools menu could also contain the Full-Justify command,
which is now in the ^W menu where it is completely out place,
the Cut-to-end-of-buffer command that is now dangerously bound to
the single keystroke M-T, the Linter command, and the Spell-Check
command, besides the Feed-buffer-through-external-command command.
As I would prefer to reserve the Alt keystrokes for toggly things,
I would propose to bind the Tools menu to ^T, and in that menu bind
^T to the Spell-check command, so that spell checking changes from
a single ^T to a double ^T. In summary:
^T^T Spell checker
^T^J Full justify
^T^K Cut to end of buffer
^T^P Pipe buffer (or marked region) through a command
And maybe also (because related to ^T^P):
What do you think?
