Maybe it could be used for modal keybindings if your gaze changes modes e.g. focus between the panes of an IDE. hjkl moves the cursor when looking at the code, but it traverses the file hierarchy when looking at the sidebar, and enumerates tabs when looking at widgets.

Kind of like how keys are reused in Vim yet have similar meanings across each mode. You don't have to remember so many unique keybindings.

Some editors let you switch between panes with keybindings, but once you have more than a few or some in weird shapes, you end up needing tmux's `C-b q` pane selector. Seems like gaze could replace most of that.
