This is implemented, and so far as I've heard, it works.  A tracefile (to me,
don't spam the list) would be appreciated.  Also, I assume you mean version

The more recent version are available fromthe cvs server:

We've actually fixed a number of things for other people who are used to
typing ahead (at one point it was not possible to type ahead at all, which
upset a few people :)
