(Turns out Ray's IDE does have that feature after all.)

You're probably right about that, insofar as discovering features is
concerned.  (To a point, anyway; 80/20 still applies.  Still, you can
look for people who post videos of themselves coding.)  However,
knowing a ton of features shouldn't be your highest priority, IMO.
It's very much like the difference between memorizing a map and
learning to navigate.

I will, for the third and last time, remind you that your fashion of
comments _will_ break, in a specific way.
