I do the same thing, but with vim and ipython.  But for my most commonly
unique commands, on my most frequently used box:

   3334 git
   1438 ls
    879 less
    654 ack
    568 cd
    543 grep
    458 cat
    410 hg
    361 nosetests
    323 mv
    294 rm
    260 python
    250 echo
    221 sudo
    209 man
    185 aptitude
    165 for
    140 ssh
    127 mkdir
    103 diff

Among those sudo commands:

     61 aptitude
     24 apt-get
     19 service
     17 cat
     12 ls
      9 mv
      8 cp
      7 rm
      5 chgrp
      4 ln

And yes, I use for loops on the command line.  I'm more surprised by the
rm lines; I don't think of myself as that destructive.
