[PyKDE] Trivial improvement in the autocompletion of Eric3

IMHO, with a small change, eric3 would become much more usable.
I noticed there is a good autocompletion feature, with a listbox that pops up;
then you move with the arrows. The overall result is similar to emacs' (M-/)
autocompletion feature. The only problem is that the list is not sorted by
distance. So it takes many presses on the down arrow to reach the correct
completion (on average).
imagine the contents of the file is as follows:
h <<< we press "h" here
and suppose we press h in the middle of the file. Then, the list of
completions should be sorted as follows:
[ hdddddd, hcccccccc, hbbbbbbb, haaaaaa]
that is, not by name, but by distance (and if two words have the same
distance, you prefer the one above).
I think if eric3 could have such a feature, I would prefer it over emacs for
editing my code.
Thanks for any comment :-)
