Prompts for Key Sequences

 It would be great to have a key sequence where upon executing, you are prompted for a parameter, that can get entered into the keyboard sequence.

Creating a symbolic link:
Prompt: "Create a link for what file?"  {fileprompt}

Key Sequence:
ln -s /path/to/original/file/{fileprompt} {fileprompt}

I came here looking for how to do just this!  I'd love to be able to use key sequences for simple automation tasks that require just minimal user input (defining one or two variables at runtime). It would be awesome to be able to prompt for this type of input.
