Surround-With context menu

I notice that the surround-with context menu is now context sensitive. This
is probably a good idea, but it has changed the shortcut keys for my
familiar shortcuts, including the ones that I created.

The greatest value of ReSharper for me is that I can speed along writing
code and I don't even realize that I am using the keyboard shortcuts for
things. Surround with: region alway was ctrl-alt-J-6 for me, now it changes
based on content. I find that I am surrounding things with the wrong
construct, have to go back and undo and then look at the context menu to see
which shortcut key is assigned now.

Is it possible to limit the choices based on context, but to keep the
original shortcut keys as indicated in Options -> Surround With -> Quick
access list?

Thanks

I would definitely agree with this idea. To make me have to stop and read
to figure out which number was just assigned to the function I want isn't
really acceptable.... the short-cut should remain the same, and others
should just be grayed out if not applicable.
