After using this for a bit, I've found it really useful for when I can't
remember the argument order of a procedure.

I think it's possible that it'd be more useful if it activated based on
mouse position and faded out when the mouse cursor is off the
identifier. Especially since you don't get the info as you're typing
anyway (only after you have a valid expression).

Right now you also have to make an extra click and then hover over the
blue thing (unless it's locked, but then it never goes away even if you
move the insertion point).
