One Quickie

Disabling the "autorepeat pops up accent menu" (Hacks->General)
Remember the good old days when holding down 'e' would give you a line of eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee? With 10.7, it now pops up an accent panel. If you already know how to make the accents and want your autorepeat back, run this defaults write and relaunch your apps.
% defaults write -g ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
