Really cool, that the apidocs work now for all possibilities of for example
It should be noted that clicking *anywhere* on the call tip toggles it
:-) At first I clicked the arrows...
I experimented with adapting the adeptsense to allow toggling with the
keyboard, along the lines of

local keypress_event_id = events.connect('keypress',
    function(code, shift, control, alt)
      if buffer:call_tip_active() then
--        if control and string.char(code) == 'n' then
        if control and keys.KEYSYMS[code] == 'up' then
          apidocs.pos = apidocs.pos + (position == 1 and -1 or 1)
          if apidocs.pos > #apidocs then apidocs.pos = 1 end
          if apidocs.pos < 1 then apidocs.pos = #apidocs end
          buffer:call_tip_show(buffer.current_pos, apidocs[apidocs.pos])
          return true
    end, 1)
  _G.timeout(1, function()
    if buffer:call_tip_active() then return true end
    events.disconnect('call_tip_click', event_id)
    events.disconnect('keypress', keypress_event_id)

It appears that simply using 'up' and 'down' is not possible because
Scintilla cancels the
call tip on anything that is "not compatible with editing the argument
list of a function."

Would you accept a proper patch, if yes, which keys should we be using?
ctrl-n/p, alt-up/down, ctrl-up/down?
