Not really. I need no popup at all. I need help to enter the right
paths, and to FAST type long paths. I find the auto-complete and it's
plentitude of features to be more than enough for my needs. I want to
keep my fingers on the keyboard when I type and I like to keep the
advantage of the command-line to fast repeat prior statements; to save
my procedure to a script; to do redirects of streams and pipe commands
together etc. All the reasons that when it comes to system
administration I'm a firm believer in the power of the command-line.
