It is really nice. There is a similar solution in org-mode (the export
dispatcher) and even in auctex (which is simpler but generally works out
the right thing to do for you).

All of them are text, all of the fast and all of them easy to use (but
slightly different). Having a generic library that could be reused by
different packages would be great.
