I guess the right solution is to improve completion-at-point so that it
can be told to use cycling (the functionality is already provided by the
minibuffer-force-complete command).

This relates to a larger question: how to provide "in-buffer" the
variety of completion commands seen in minibuffer completion.
I.e. minibuffer-completion-help, minibuffer-force-complete,
minibuffer-complete-word, icomplete-mode, ...
