What kind of input do you expect?

About VisualBasic like completion selection, I think it is better 
to extend the behavior of popup-menu. The popup menu of emacs configured
with --with-gtk can do
1) select a menu item with cursor keys, and
2) pass other keys to the behind buffer and close the popup menu itself.

The biggest problem is that there is no elisp function to pop down the 
popup menu. (Correct me if I write wroing.) So you cannot use the popup
menu with timers.
