Mac OS X

A while back I was searching for a way to launch applications on selected file(s) in the Mac OS X Finder using Hotkeys. This is different from launching the default application (Cmd-Down, Cmd-O or Double-Click the mouse) for a file as I sometimes want to launch different applications on the same file types - like a 'Right Click-Open With' using a mouse, or dragging a file onto an application in the dock or in the applications folder - but with fewer clicks and (more importantly for me) without using the mouse.

For example, I want the currently selected file(s) in the finder to be opened with TextMate when I hit Shift-Cmd-T, to be opened with 0xED when I hit Shift-Cmd-X and to be opened in VLC when I hit Shift-Cmd-V. I have managed to get this working and find this to be a great time saver, so I thought I'd share it.
