7.2 Future Improvements

Possible future improvements to predictive completion (in no particular order):

  1. Allow the learning rate (i.e. increment added each time a word is learnt) to be set buffer-locally and/or separately for each dictionary?
  2. Support for more major modes. (This one will probably be here for ever. I suspect new major modes are being created faster than predictive mode setup functions!)
  3. More predictive mode configuration variables could be allowed to have “overlay-local” bindings, not just the active dictionary, completion-menu function, and completion-word-thing.
  4. Predictive mode should be integrated with the semantic or similar package, to make it more useful for programming languages. At the moment, it works best with plain text and markup languages.
