Feature request: run function on highlighted object

Hi, love the software — wondering if the following might make a good feature (if it's not already and I just haven't found it):

I often want to see the names or structure of objects that I am working with and I usually quickly execute a names(obj) call within the code chunk that I am editing, before deleting it, or run it in the console.

I wondered if there could be a feature whereby you highlight an object name, hold a key/s down (ctl + shift) and then type the first few letters of a function name (e.g. names, str, length etc.). The function name would display and autocomplete and when you hit return it would run it, using the highlighted object as the first argument.

Any thoughts?
