And you can use buffer *Completions* like a menu, if candidate cycling is
available.  Your minibuffer input (what's currently in the minibuffer) filters
the possible completions (i.e., filters the menu).

Icicles lets you do this.

* You can also refine the "menu" (candidates) progressively, combining multiple
patterns (e.g., substrings, regexps).

* You can also choose multiple candidates (multiple-choice menu).

* You can also, during any minibuffer input (not just with completion), hit
`M-o' to complete against the current minibuffer history, inserting the choice
into the minibuffer.
