There is a patch for making edoc list the callbacks, so that you're no
worse off than with behaviour_info:


It is lined up to be released in R15B02, due 5 September.

Of course, it would be nice if edoc would display the callback types,
and allow documenting callbacks like it does with -type declarations,
but I'm not aware of anyone working on that.
