looks useful, thanks!

some minor issues relevant to large files. I find the list produced  
still a bit hard to parse. Some suggestions:

- use smaller font for menu, perhaps same size as hemlock buffer itself?
- in positional mode use indentation if method "belongs" to class  
above, e.g.,

(defclass BLA ...

(defmethod m1 ((self bla) ...

(defmethod m2 ((self bla) ...


BLA {class}

Perhaps you could use colored mini icons in the pop up to indicate the  
type of thing (e.g., class, defun, defmethod... ) similar to the  
symbol listing in Xcode

Finally, not sure this is a bug or feature. The list appears to be  
incomplete at first. One has to scroll through the entire buffer to  
get the complete list. Is this by choice?

all the best,  Alex
