There is  C-h ., which you yourself suggested once.  But interesting
that you bring that up.  I did put one now, precisely because it kind
of hurts, and because C-h . should be handled by eldoc.el or

And that is why I made eldoc.el a :core package ;-)

Anyway, see https://github.com/joaotavora/eglot/issues/454

In LSP, they are associated with the diagnostic object.  So
they go into flymake's facility of interactive diagnostics.  But
part of it is currently in Eglot, as commands.  The long-term
goal is for it not to be, as I stated.

Why? Just tell them at the splash screen: "to start advanced
IDE features, M-x start-ide-ing".  Weren't you the one talking
about a "how to IDE" tutorial?  Or was it someone else.  It
sould be a 1-step tutorial in this case.
