`ido' is rather problematic because it's a very different interface with
incompatible key-bindings and it is not a superset of the current
default completion UI.
Iswitchb is marked obsolete in the trunk: you can get the same

functionality with icomplete-mode. So you can increase the count of
`icomplete-mode' for all users who have enabled iswitchb without
The plan for "ido by default" is rather to slowly make ido obsolete by
adding the corresponding functionality either in the default completion
UI or in icomplete-mode.
An alternative is to try and re-implement it on top of the current
completion UI. To a large extent, it boils down to the same.
Indeed. But I think it can be a good starting point for discussions

about individual packages.
