I've just pushed up a simple implementation of the above.  The new
function `org-babel-insert-header-arg' bound to C-c C-v j will insert a
header argument and its value using completing read in the minibuffer.

Just looked into it briefly, and it looks brilliant. Will let you know if I encounter problems.




I'm sure the current functionality has room for improvement but it seems
to work well in my initial tests.

Let me know what you think.
