Not sure about FJI, I don't think FJII had it though.  It would be very cool
to have an FB^3 application which would do this.

Another option is to use FB^3's scripting ability.  Since functions can be
placed in these scripts, then simply selecting the script name from the FB^3
Scripts menu would auto insert the function into the editor.

To make this work, I'm gonna make a feature request for a future FB^3
releases.

It would be nice to have FB^3;

 (1) read multiple Script files (with different but descriptive file names)
which have been placed in the Plug-Ins folder,
 (2) with each file names as a menu item, and
 (3) each files STR# resource as a hierarchical menu off the menu item.

This way, multiple "Script" files can be organized into different focus
areas with commands their commands easily available to the programmer.
