I put it over there so it would be obviously a keyboard shortcut;  
that's how it's done for all other keyboard shortcuts in Blender.   
It's a subtle hint for those who don't know you can push W-5 and have  
something happen; I knew practically all the shortcuts, but I didn't  
know that could happen.  It's something that would make a fast  
workflow faster for people.

I've addressed this; the patch no longer crashes -- it was bad usage  
of MEM_mallocN.  I didn't see it; I'm on a Mac and they're a bit  
permissive with memory (patch is still at http://www.princeton.edu/ 
~mplough/files/interface_patch ).

I wouldn't say this is a done deal at this point -- some discussion  
would be nice.
