ee-commands - categorized menu of Emacs commands

Description

This extension displays a list of available Emacs commands categorized under different groups along with their documentation strings. After typing <RET> on the selected command it invokes this command (with possible argument keys) on the parent buffer (i.e. on the buffer where ee-commands was called).

Note that ee-commands is NOT replacement for executing the commands by M-x. But it is intended to be a replacement for browsing the command completion lists (invoked by <TAB>), because ee-commands is more usable for inspecting what commands are available under certain categories.
