I also am for it.

Well, window height can be calculated, so that it's filled up like:

1 4
2 5
3 5
---- page boundary
6 9
7 10

Still not sure if this is a good idea, as it would make not much sense when
user moves in a line-by-line basis through the buffer. But again, the
"show next bunch of completions" moves to next "page", so it would behave
as expected.

Also, layout should be recalculated when user changes window height...

As for searching, it's "page-wise", so not much problem would arise from
