There are some AE commands that don't seem to be available as menu commands and/or as commands in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog. I want to be able to expose some of these to scripting so that I can assign keyboard shortcuts to those scripts, to call the commands.

For example, some of my most-used commands while animating are the ones you get when selecting a keyframe in the timeline and right-clicking it: Go to Keyframe Time, Select Equal Keyframes, Select Following Keyframes, etc. I use these all the time, and it's a pain to have to call up that menu and find the command I want every time.

It'd be great to be able to expose these. As far as I can tell, they don't have menu command IDs. How to get at these?
