Snippet Feature Suggestion

I was adding a snippet and something occured to me , I want to add this repeatedly using similar names

There are 2 options I can think of

Have multiple $CURSOR$ positions so you can Tab between Cursor positions to make life easier .

or (better)

Add in $Parameter$

As the snippet is inserted , generate a Dialog to prompt for the inserted $Parameter$ . Have a look at Visual Assist X (www.WholeTomato.com )which does exactly this , it allows you to enter very large blocks of repetative code , by specifying only a few Parameter words.

A bit like Visual Studio Snippets

Yes I am a lazy coder !!
