The browser should include pragma selectors when doing "implementors..." so one can easily find the implementation of a pragma.  Also senders... should answer methods with pragmas with the selector being looked for.  If both of these are true then pragmas are much easier to explore and understand.

It does. But I want more :)
I want a comment that explain to me the purpose.
