Thanks for the tip, I'll give it a go:

The one I would really like is the option to just see a list of possible
parameter names for this function. Invariably this is all I am looking in
the docs for anyway - I can't remember the order of the damn parameters
(even worse for my own libraries half the time as the documentation is
elsewhere (or it is the source :( )).

I am certainly not suggesting that we have Visual C++ on acid - but there is
some functionality which I believe would really help (especially those
people who can't get on with emacs or don't have access).

Yes, I am aware of this one. The additional benefit would be that I wouldn't
have to generate the new tags file every time I wrote a new function...
