The three other points are all due to the choice of default behavior
(half-cycling).  Changing that default is trivial.
The use of pcomplete.el has several advantages, even if you make
it behave "almost as the old code", so I think it would be an error
to revert the change.
But I agree that the default should be changed to match the previous
non-cycling behavior (which is also the behavior used throughout Emacs).
