Thanks!  From a quick glance I can see that Icicles is (are?)
incompatible with Ido.  I'd like to ask "which is better", but this is
probably not a good idea;), so let me ask: are there any people here

probably use only a small fraction of its features.  And it is well
possible that Icicles will give me all I need from Ido.)
