+1 to make it possible to change the annotation mode via API from 
another plugin.

+1 to add a user defined key mapping, this feature is definitely useful 
also for users
who just have a few types. The automatic type mapping might be annoying 
if there
are multiple types with the same first letter.

The menus which contain a type probably do not scale to more than 20 or 
so, maybe
that should be fixed as well somehow?
