I've just added the following comment:

It may be useful to clarify is this going to be the 'Documentation'
pane that already exists at the bottom of the SE or is it going to be
a different pane. Also, how is the content/functionality going to be
different from the current Documentation pane.

>From my own perspective, I already use the Documentation pane as an
aide-memoire and if necessary I can copy the example and paste it into
the SE. What I'd like to see is rather than the single most complex
example given, a list of examples from simplest to most complex and
instead of having to revert to the mouse to copy and paste, option-1,
option-2 etc to copy the chosen variation into the line where the
insertion point is.

To me this allows 'autocompletion' to be turned On or Off by selection
of the pane (be it the Documentation or some other named pane), the
location of the suggestions is constant and less invasive, and the
keystrokes to use is always just two (option + a number); no
navigating down a list then typing the activation key.
