THe doc string now reads:

This will either use ido or iswitchb for buffer name completion,
depending on the variables `org-completion-use-iswitchb' and
`org-completion-use-ido'.  If both are nil, we will still use
for this special application."

Hmmm... this sounds a bit confusing!  why not just have
org-completion-use-ido, and if that is non-nil, we use ido, else we
iswitchb.  Unless these variables are also used in other contexts
I doubt)?

Oh yes, the are used in *many* contexts.  Whenever Org offers
completion which would not be made worse by using one of these packages,
it will offer that special kind of completion.

how about changing the 2nd para to:

This will use iswitchb for buffer name completion, unless
`org-completion-use-ido' is non-nil, to select ido completion

I would suggest changing the function name to org-switchb (alias
org-iswitchb to use it) and then the documentation reads:

This is a good proposal, but I prefer to not change the names of
commands unless really necessary.  Changing it will break the
config of users.

As an aside I found iswitchb to be a subset of ido and the ido fuzzy
completion invaluable in refiling to various org targets.
