Well, Vim7's autocompletion already allows this.  Earlier 
versions of vim also allowed similar behavior, but (AFAIK) didn't 
have a nice way to cancel the suggestion or to accept the 
suggestion without an additional character (or leaving insert 
mode).  In Vim7, you can abort your current ^P/^N completion with 
^E (to regain just what you typed, minus the current 
completion/suggestion) or you can accept it with ^Y (which won't 
add an extra character), or you can just continue typing to 
accept the completion, and then add the character you typed (such 
as space, period, etc).

Other editors/IDEs may have similar functionality...
