A completely different possiblity, but i don't know if that makes sense
for your case...
In JFace, there you can have text fields with fieldassist. That is
something like autocompletion.
See dwt-samples/jface/user/Decoration.d
Press Ctrl+Space in the second text field. This behaviour can be
customized in a wide range.
