We plan to add a calltips popup as well in the future.  Putting them 
directly into the completer is also an idea but probably wouldn't work 
so well for long arg lists.  Note that in Wing 4.0.4+ if you enable the 
Editor > Auto-Editing > Auto-Enter Invocation Args preference then Wing 
will place the default args after you type the '(' in an invocation and 
you can tab through them to edit/replace them.  The initial selection is 
all args so it's easy to just type over it, but hitting tab then goes 
arg by arg.  This was new in 4.0.4 and I think I've fixed a bug w/ 
handling nested invocations in the Python Shell since 4.0.4 but it 
should work in general.
