The command is dynamic in a sense that it assumes that
ess-describe-object-at-point is bound to a key and you will use the last
part of that binding to cycle. For example if you bind it to C-c g the
cycling is done with g.

"m" comes from C-m (aka RET). A small glitch in the message; it doesn't
show the prefix.
