That sounds singularly dreadful to me. Moving the cursor around should
be an extremely lightweight and fast operation, and having a popup every
time the cursor was to the right of a '(' would be a huge annoyance and
probable drag on code editing. Furthermore, it would continually
obscure other code that I would be trying to look at.
Frankly, I often have the opposite problem -- in 0.13.dev (don't
remember the date I pulled from git), I sometimes have the yellow help
box pop up when I let the cursor linger too long after typing a '(', and
when that happens, I cannot get it to disappear again...
