Request: Bring back xfrun4 mode
Submitted by Timo Lindemann

I hope this is the place to bring up a suggestion. I've been using xfrun4 so much the past years that I really am not happy with appfinder. xfrun4 could autocomplete previously entered commands; appfinder seems not to be capable of remembering or completing some of my most used scripts (residing in ~/bin, for instance, which is in $PATH). That would not be so annoying if appfinder would actually remember commands that were run, which it somehow forgets after a reboot.
Because this severely impacts my workflow and is so annoying, I suggest adding xfrun4 behaviour back to appfinder and make it an option.
Examples of commands that are run the most on my box from Alt+F2 which are just not cached by appfinder over reboots:
sudo hibernate # suspends system hddual.sh # script in ~/bin single.sh # script in ~/bin dpmsoff.sh # script in ~/bin
also, things like
startx ~/bin/fallout2.sh -- :1 # starts fallout 2 via wine, it's just an example
used to work because xfrun remembered the whole line.
Thanks for your consideration.
