Autocompletion

Sorry for being careless in my choice of words: when I wrote "dictionary", I meant a collection of words in any given human language, not a Python dictionary.

Perhaps I should try to explain a bit more what I try to accomplish: in a notebook the user will write text, and certain words (collected in a, let's say, vocabulary) need this feature. Ideally, I'd like to start the autocompletion feature when the widget gets the focus, and stop it when focus is lost. Moreover, when starting, a numeric parameter should dictate that the autocompletion will kick in after writing the respective number of characters.

I said "notebook" because that's my intended use, but any kind of text entry should have the same behaviour if autocompletion is associated with it.

I am targeting an English and a French vocabulary.
