Yet another arglist comment!

That's exactly what MCL does!!!

90% of the time, the minibuffer does the job nicely and in a very unobstrusive way.
If you see that you don't have all the arguments, just do a ctrl-x ctrl-d and you
will get a nice window containing *all* the arguments and more!

I think that as the quantity of information available grows, it will become more
and more important to find ways to have unobstrusive access to the most imortant parts
of this information. When we need more, a simple command should make the whole stuff
