I think you sent this to the wrong list - semediawiki-user instead of
semediawiki-devel. Not that it matters that much. Anyway, that's useful
feedback. I should note that, for anyone who prefers autocompletion across
all characters, you can do that already in SF by just adding the following
$sfgAutocompleteOnAllChars = true;
