I'm trust most of us encountered shortcut conflict while using sublime because there is so many great plugins and we want to try all of them.
Sometimes I installed several new plugins and found out one of the original keyboard shortcut was no longer available. This will always drive me crazy cause I'm the so-called "shortcut geek". I will have to stop my work, browse the Sublime packages directory,check all the key-map files, find out which plugin caused conflict, assign another shortcut , then back to work.
Maybe there is a better way to deal with this situation, when Editor encounter shortcut conflicts, could it just popup a command panel, show all the possible key-maps so I can use up and down arrows to chose one of them, and I could change the key-map latter. I recently found out aptana studio handle shortcut conflicts just like the way I said. I tried it for a little while and feels pretty good. Hope this idea will make Sublime better.

I would love to see support for multiple projects in a single window.
Personally I find the one-project-per-window approach difficult to use. Especially when I am working on two related projects, having access to multiple projects' files in one consolidated list would be very helpful.
How I imagine this working is splitting the sidebar up into collapsible top-level project groups:
Foo Project 1 OPEN FILES (Foo Project 1's open files list) FOLDERS (Foo Project 1's folders) Foo Project 2 OPEN FILES (Foo Project 2's open files list) FOLDERS (Foo Project 2's folders) etc.
Clicking on an open file or folder would switch the tabs shown in the current window to the corresponding project's open tabs.
With drag and drop support in the sidebar it would be easy to move open tabs and files between projects.
This method could also help with ST2's problem of adding random unrelated/one-off files to the project that happens to be open/focused. By optionally having a 'Loose Files' project in the sidebar, opened files that are outside of any open project's folder scope could be automatically (or manually) put there without opening another ST2 window.
Allowing both multiple windows and multiple projects per window (and remembering these between sessions) could work well for certain styles of workflow as well. Some 'search in all this window's projects' function akin to (or replacing) Ctrl+P would also be dandy.
Could integrate with a site that already has this info. Also, being able to set the version (e.g., Oracle 11gR2) would be really sweet. Having this integrated into an editor rather than having to refer to *gulp* books, or online resources we be...sublime.
I work with many open files at once which have the same name and are only differentiated by their path. So the list of open files result in being 5x product.py, complete.py etc..
It would be nice to see the end of the path within the empty space either on the left or on the right side of the filename.
For example on the left:
For example on the right:
product.py - …api/input/collector/
product.py - …ox/restapi/abstract/
The path should be shown in a lighter/transparent color so that the filename is prominent.
PS I prefer the variant on the right.
"[W]hat happens when clicking outside the view rectangle can now be configured. By default, it does nothing. To change this, edit the file type options and set 'clickToScroll' to either 'position' (the old behaviour), or 'text', to scroll the view to the clicked on text."
