[Pharo Trick: #0004] - Run code using a key command to speedup development
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Works in: Pharo3.0 Latest update: #30637 but should work in other 2.0/3.0 versions

If you have to run some code very often you typically have to evaluate it 
from a workspace over and over again. 
But to speed up you can assign a global keymapping which allows to run it with
a simple keyboard shortcut:

   World 
      on: $a shift command 
      do: [ Object browse ].

Evaluate this once in a workspace. After that anytime you press SHIFT, the 
command button (on Windows this is ALT) and A together the block gets evaluated 
and your code runs easily.

Background:
===========
In Pharo there is a global morph called "World" representing the desktop.
One can assign a key combination to any morph including this world.
