I've also done something similar, called the Teleporter (couldn't  
find a nice reference to Quicksilver at the time ;-) ...)
It is available as part of BrowserBooster (http:// 

Basically you press cmd-1, enter a piece of text in the little pop-up  
that appears and press enter.

The syntax is different though:

- entering a single substring will look for a class name, then a  
message name (it is case insensitive).
- entering two strings will look for a class and a message (eg "ord  
- multiple parts of a name can be matched if separated by a dot (as  
in "ord.col do")
- multiple matches are shown in a menu (which can be keyboard  
navigable if the preferences are set right)
- commands are by defaults browsing and implementors, but can be  
changed via single-letter prefixes (b = browse, r = references, s =  
senders, i = implementors).
- It can also evaluate smalltalk expressions as they usually do not  
match these patterns (3 + 4 makes you inspect 7).

That's basically it. It can also be easily extended by adding new  
prefixes to create new kind of commands (see the commands category in  
the Teleporter class for that).
