NetBeans seems to have a million nice key combo shortcuts to do just about anything.  For those people that don't want
to remember key combos, but prefer little buttons everywhere, I suggest this...

The Toolbox
This could be just a little place (possibly a floating toolbar) that has a bunch of little buttons in it.  Each button
could have a user specified icon (of some fixed size) and user specified text.  The action for the button would simply
be tied to a key combo.  For example, if I didn't want to remember that Ctrl-B would find the super-implementation of a
selected method, I could create a button in the toolbox, set it's icon to something like an arrow pointing up or a
Superman logo, set it's text to "super impl" (or maybe no text at all), and tie it's action to Ctrl-B.  Then I could
just click it when I wanted to do what Ctrl-B would do.
