Netbeans has an editor toolbar which, apart from other things, has a
method list box. This shows, at a glance, the current method where the
cursor is. This was pretty useful. In Idea this requires at least some
scrolling or keystrokes.
Could such a utility be developed as a plugin? Maybe the status bar
could be used to show the current methood, or if the "Structure" panel
is open, it could highlight the current method.
