You have a very emacs-lisp-biased-view. In languages with namespaces and
good taste for names (clojure as example) filtering candidates is very

It's even more so for languages with narrower scope, like those for
technical computing (R, julia, matlab). I can assure you that in R, with
ido, candidate selection is a breeze and 2-3 keys are often enough to
get what you want. It really beats navigation-to-the-symbol to the
ground AFAIC.
