ABBREVIATIONS NEED: 1.auto completion and 2.hierarchies

hey there at startly,
your QuicKeys application could be one of the next power users diamonds which put you on warp speed. but it lacks to features with none of the text expanders on mac have so far:

1+2 . auto completion of hierarchically structured abbreviations
------------------------------------------------------------------------
the most common problems with abbreviations is that if you don't really need them like everyday. you tend to forget the abbreviation itself. but i don't forget the global context. for example:
i want to organize html code snippets i have like this:

html$body (-> <body> <div id="pageWrapper">......</body>
html$script (-> <script type="....... )
html$....

or

me$signature
me$email
me$address

i think you can see where this is going. problem so far i have with several other text expanders is that they (often):
- don't support special characters
- can't auto complete because they are not aware of hierarchical structured abbreviations

do you guys think there is a chance this will be implemented soon ?? otherwise i need to write an application myself :D i am not kidding 8)
or what does everybody else think about this?

cheers,
martin

ps:if you are interested in how this should/can work in detail, don't hesitate to contact me. i am currently studying media computer science in germany and investigating cognitive aspects of human-computer-interaction.
