Did I miss a discussion somewhere about obsoleting iswitchb and
replacing it with icomplete?  The obsolescence itself is a little
surprising to me, as I personally know of a few people who prefer it
to more featureful alternatives, but far more surprising to me is the
designation of icomplete as its successor instead of ido.  It's my
impression that ido is _far_ more widely used than icomplete.  That
impression is based on how very frequently ido is recommended or
inquired about on #emacs, in stark contrast to icomplete, which is
recommended or inquired about there approximately never.  The
last mention of icomplete in my logs (which do have some holes)
was on August 23, nearly three months ago; the last mention of
ido was yesterday.
