don't know if anyone here wants to hear about it, but this is exactly  
what the clippings folder in maxmsp is used for.
the user can save little (or big) code snippets there as regular  
patch files. then you can access the patches through a context menu  
and paste the code snippets into any new patches you are working on.
ok, no key-shortcuts yet, but those could be added easily i suppose.
very handy feature in my opinion.
