I made sure the placement is out-of-the-way enough, but it's true that
it may interfere with code-completion. The current assistants don't pop
up in a context where you'd want code-completion I believe, but that's
more of a coincidence than something to count on. Hrm...

That would certainly be good, though I'd prefer to think about that
after this is set.

One of the ideas in doing this was to simplify the information shown
right off, I think the tooltips are adequate for when the user wants to
see exactly what will happen. Don't you think?
Thanks for taking a look,
