Stage 1: Definition
1. Feature overview
2. Users & use cases
The new autocomplete popup lists the possible completions such that the user can either click them or scroll through them using the up/down arrow keys. Tab and Enter allow the user to accept the selected completion. Escape closes the popup and deletes the proposed completion.
If the feature is not ready during the Aurora phase, msucan will back it out.

Autocompletion is implemented in many contexts. Prior to this feature, our completion is similar to that of the WebKit Inspector, but Firebug's current completion UI (which uses a popup as proposed here) seems more usable.
