Furthermore, C-. and C-, are not available in ttys.

More importantly however, icomplete's key bindings would be a moot
point in any rational discussion about iswitchb's successor given
the fact that all of the available evidence indicates that users
prefer ido to icomplete by a wide margin, and that to the best of my
knowledge the _only_ argument that has been put forward in icomplete's
favor is Stefan's presumption that the package preferred by the
majority of users could not be configured to behave like the package
preferred by a far smaller minority.
