I've tried it out, and it's pretty nice. The latency seemed to be a bit bigger than with the default completion table based on 'find', but not significantly so.

path-iterator doesn't have to handle the contents of .gitignore, so it's not a huge surprise. If support is added, it's sure to become slower.

I don't think it can be *the* UI for everybody. Yeah, being able to type abbreviated names can be nice, but a lot of users will prefer full directories and fuzzy matching based on completion styles. Segregating by project types probably won't work well either.

There's a bug in path-iterator; I've set :ignore-function to ignore any
dir under ".git", but they are showing up anyway.
The first thing I've noticed, actually.
