Alternate actions are a very powerful feature of Quicksilver. When a user selects an action in the second pane, they can hit ↩ to run it, or they can hit ⌘↩ to run an alternate (if one is defined). Generally an alternate action will be similar to the main action, but modified in some way.

Quicksilver ß71+

As of Quicksilver ß71 you can view the alternate to a given action (if it exists) buy holding the ⌘ key when Quicksilver's interface is open. You can view a full list of the alternate actions in the 'Alternate Action (⌘↩)' column of the Actions preference pane.
