Thank you for your suggestions. Perhaps my main problem was that I
didn't see these documented anywhere. I looked at the icomplete-mode
doc-string, the icomplete.el commentary, and the icomplete-completions
doc-string since it was mentioned in the documentary, and I searched the
Emacs manual index for icomplete. I will give it another try.

FWIW, I'm currently using: GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (i686-apple-darwin, NS
apple-appkit-1038.36) of 2013-03-13 on bob.porkrind.org, and some other
GNU Emacs binary built for Windows in the office.
