Yes.  It's not really that the functionality is gone, people can
activate it with a single user option.  Later on, we can discuss to
change the default for that option.

But getting people to accept pcomplete everywhere is the difficult
part.  It promises tremendous benefit.

(The echo area message about remaining number of completions would be
cool nonetheless.  It might make me turn completion cycling back on :-)
