I think that someone's working on this

Yes, I think when the newer completion bundle from David Powers has been deemed useable enough, the other (snippet-based completion) bundles will go.

Well, I'm not quite sure what David's vision is for the OCaml Completion bundle he's working on, but I can only hope that it's a better one than that of the latex/ruby bundle style completion, which I find to be pretty useless.

Now, OCaml does have an advantage here in that the default mode of operation is to use modules and not classes, allowing for an easier narrowing of possible completions in most cases, but still the notion of having to hit escape 15 times to get the right function, and then to not have the parameters appear as well is, frankly, a step (or three) in the wrong direction.

Of course, at the moment it doesn't appear to do anything, and one of the commands relies on cmigrep which isn't included with the bundle, so who knows where it's going...

option-escape in Ruby now does an intelligent completion menu.
option-escape in CSS, HTML & Prototype Js now does a menu too.
Way totally crappy compared to xcode and CSSEdit, but better than nothing.
