7.2 Future Improvements
Possible future improvements to predictive completion (in no particular
- 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?
- 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!)
- 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.
- 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.
