OK.  Patches welcome.

During potentially expensive filtering it is hidden.  It's better than
showing incorrect information, in my opinion.  It reappears once the
totals are known.  Would you rather if "flickered" to "?/?"  ?  Or would
you rather redisplay is inhibited until the totals are known?  Other
completers may use this last option, but I personally dislike sluggish
typing response.  And the whole constant updating thing is about
"flickering" anyway.

Anyway, avoiding intermediate rediplay seems possible but slightly
harder to implement in icomplete.el.
