They keybindings automates what you can already do with some three or
four or ten or seventeen keystrokes currently.

For example, send-selection-to-repl is equivalent to this (on a mac
and assuming that the defs and interactions are both initially visible
and you have something selected (the keyboard focus also has to be in
the definitions, but that's a pre-req for send-selection-to-repl too))


except, of course, that send-selection-to-repl doesn't actually
clobber your copy/paste buffer like the sequence above does.

There are, of course, alternative sequences that are also equivalent;
that's just the one I probably would have used if I wanted to do such
a thing.
