Unlike auto-complete-mode, Emacs's default completion system is rock-solid. :-) auto-complete uses some pretty messed up popup display library that doesn't play well with many packages. company-mode is much better in this regard. 

I guess I'm so used to the default completion system that I don't see it as something primitive and hard to work with. That said, it might not be a bad idea to include a "more modern" completion system in Emacs itself, but I'd opt for simplicity and reliability over fancy UIs.

In "(emacs.info) Completion Commands" there is help for using the
rudimentary buffer to select completion matches.  I was struck by how
hard to use this was, compared to more recent packages like these:


Is there any chance the default Emacs appearance for selecting
completion matches can be improved (not necessarily by default) for
24.4?  I would help with this but don't know what's "state of the art"
and if there's already work in this direction.
