I know. I thought I had clearly established (confessed?) that I had
clearly lost the ability both read and comprehend :)
I guess it is up for debate whether or not it has returned.

Highlighting yes, but the whole bit about moving the cursor to the
right side of an s-expression hitting enter to paste in that
s-expression is just not obvious to me at all.
That is a nice feature, it needs publicity. That is my point.

I know. Sometimes it is the smallest things that can make a
difference. A little feature in the IDE can be such a nice surprise.

It is also very, very nice that the PLT guys do what they do with both

language where the community is populated largely by experts. Maybe it
is a little thing but it is really special.
