use crtl+p to execute commands

use crtl+p to execute commands

Sublime offers a lot of commands and the ability to extend them. However to execute the commands using the keyboard, the user either have to press the key binding associated with it or call it from the console: view.execute_commnad("... ").

It would be nice to be able to execute command by hitting ctrl+p and type a short command alias and hit enter. This would be similar to vim way of executing commads which is proven to be powerful.

key-binding are ok but sometimes commands are better remembered by typing them like search and replace for example.

+1 for command mode. I'm also used with VIM modal workflow and is really a pain to use the mouse and dig inside the menus just to find the command I need. And also is A LOT more powerful! Imagine you need to copy the current line 50 times. In VIM you just type yy50p and thats it! Now try to make the same thing in Sublime and tellme how many steps you need to make to achieve the same result.
