Explain the expected usage, circumstances, and possible errors to inform the person that stumbles upon this method. If you omit to motivate, people might not use it correctly. Also, discovery can be supported with a comment. Think of full-text search in the image.

I am writing this in a more general sense because you are proposing quite many convenience methods lately. :-)

Hi Marcel,

if the block is part of a do-it method, it is not installed so you will be informed that "no version are installed". We could also open a System Browser on BlockClosure in this case, but that would be inconsistent ...

A method comment could be:
"Opens a System Browser on the method that contains the receiver."
Do you think this comment adds value? :-)

There are comments missing. What if the method is a do-it? Please add comments.
