Problem: You are a BBEdit user and work in a keyboard-oriented way: you have assigned lots of shortcuts to menu items and do as much as possible without even touching the mouse. But still, there are two things you can only reach without the mouse: the function popup and the marker popup in text windows' status bars. Solution: Enter BBClick. It consists of three components: two very simple AppleScript (which, of course, can be assigned a keyboard shortcut) and a command-line application called "cliclick" which performs emulated mouse clicks on arbitrary screen coordinates.
