This the feature that I use the most in Qt Assistant. As KDevelop doesn't
offer autocompletion for Qt/KDE methods, the quickest way to find the
parameters for a method is to search in the index. Doing a real search  is
slower, and takes much more clicks. In such cases you usually know the
method name and just start to enter and quickly reach the description. Of
course you should deal with methods having the same name in different
classes. I think assistant deals well with it.
