Script Editor Autocomplete Optional?

I am impressed with the Auto Complete. This was something that several people made a point of, saying that LiveCode was incomplete without. I believe that it is like everything else in life, People are resistant to change and once it happens we will get used to it. 
I agree that there should be some way to turn it off for those that don't want to use it. 
My feeling is that any optional features are better than none.
Ricky Nelson's song Garden Party (for those who remember) said it best "you can't please everyone, but you've got to please yourself". 


Sincerely,

Well regardless of what anyone else says I love the auto-complete feature of GLX2, so I'm all for it so long as it doesn't as some have said make you work harder to uncorrect things, but that is just a matter of ironing things out, much like we all do daily with our own code.
