Hi Marc

I am enjoying vis a lot but the following missing functionality as
detrimental to my enjoyment...

I would like that too. The infrastructure of an implementation could
potentially be used for code completion too (I know it's not very popular
around here though).

The command history buffer does not yet work correctly for me but I am
very glad to see the first version working for some cases already.

In addition to Markus' items I am missing the following.

- commandline file completion on TAB key hit (when using `:edit` for example)

- spell checking (using an external spell checker of course)

- ctags integration
