[hackers][vis][RFC][PATCH 0/2] Suggestion for basic autocomplete functionality

I have implemented basic autocomplete functionality by sending the text
at cursor position as a context to shell commands and dmenu. The user
then chooses the autocompletion text he wants to use in dmenu which is
then inserted at cursor position.

Ideally the same approach should be used for code completion by sending
some context to a code completion daemon (like gocode[0] for example). The
daemon's output can then be sent to dmenu and selected by the user.

The patches are still rough but I did not want to invest more time
without knowing if such an approach would be considered for inclusion
or not. Let me know what you think.
