Seeing the "Best" codeCompletion option without pressing ctrl-space

Say I start writing the name of a class lets call it "MyClass" then it would be nice the when I have writen just part of it parhaps only the first or two first letters to see an option of autocompletion.

So when I have writen "My", "Class" is displayed behind the caret in a way that shows it is not yet "in the code"

My|Class

and if I then press say tab it completes the code.

It I would want the whole list of code completion i could still use the ctrl-space.

I'm sure not everyone would like this so it sould probebly be an option...

Kaj,

Not sure if this is a very good solution. There are at least two
problems:

1) Some users might be frustrated by odd suggestions appearing behind
the caret
2) Actually code completion is quite a time consuming task
