Include field name specified on procedure prototype in content assist prompt.

We have over 3500 procedures in our service programs. All have the field name that should be used specified on the prototype parameters. It sure would be nice if these field names were included in the Content Assist and would be injected into the program when the procedure is select from Content Assist. This would be a huge time saver.

Use Case:

The outline shows the fields specified on the prototype when you drill into the parameters. I find myself having to look at the outline after selecting a procedure using Content Assist just to see what fields should be used on the procedure. This is frustrating when you have 4 or more parameters on a procedure. Not a lot of value to have Content Assist insert a procedure in the program with a lot of colons and no field name for the parameters.
