I think that "something similar" is ivy+counsel. It works pretty fine,

Well, ivy still has the problem that it doesn't handle file finding properly.
(I.E. in normal find-file I can type ~/.c/r/r<TAB> and it gets auto-completed
to ~/.config/retroarch/re with further completions. If I try that with Ivy I
get ~/.cache/r/r without further completions.)
Icomplete is fine, though.

I have never used that :p. Any way did you report that in the ivy
