I'd like to do this with something like:

  (add-to-list 'display-buffer-alist '(
     ((name . "*Completions*")
      (method near-minibuffer below-selected other-window))

i.e. first try to create a 3rd full width bottom window, then try to
display the *Completions* buffer below the currently selected window,
and when this is not possible then display it in any other window
on the same frame.
