Details

When the command line is empty (using | for the cursor and _ for space)
> |

Pressing space gives:
> _e|val

Where eval is the completion text.


1. At the very least we should show the completion text aligned with the cursor. This is more obvious when typing starts:
> _a|
(the word l*rt is written as the completion text (* is under the a))

2. I've not looked into why eval should be chosen - there doesn't seem to be any logic behind that choice - probably 'alert' would be better.

3. Should we even be showing any completion text at all? We consciously don't to start off with because it looks confusing, so probably we shouldn't here too.
