I'm just beginning to get some experience with the VSCode codebase, so my choice of words in describing the action of this new option may not be ideal. Also, I put the option under "text editor" options-- if there is a better place for it, please let me know.

Hm, maybe a better name which puts parameter hints first. My preference would be editor.parameterHints.cycle but that would require a refactoring of the existing editor.parameterHints setting, e.g. into editor.parameterHints.enabled.
