[TxMt] word completion lookup

I've assigned different keybindings to Next/Previous Completion which  
are very close to "home base". I'm using Dvorak, but on a qwerty  
keyboard the commands would be positioned as ctrl-i and ctrl-o (with  
the caps lock as ctrl). I use TextMate for ConTeXt, so its mostly  
completion of largish words that I've used recently, as the "ctrl-i"  
position counts for me as just one keystroke. Very quick.
