No. That completes the current word. I'm talking about documentation  
that appears after you've written the word.
You would write "(foo " (space included) and Dr. Scheme would show  
what arguments 'foo would take. For instance:

"(define foo (a b c) 42)"

Then, in the interactions window (or the definitions window, if you  
had eval'ed the definition), when you write "(foo ", Dr. Scheme would  
show (somewhere) "(foo a b c)" (and possibly highlight the a).

And after that there's the problem with case-lambda that will have to  
be dealt with.
