In my opinion, the best answer is:
- help integrate IDO functionality into icomplete-mode (and into the
  default completion system).

but the more realistic one should be:

Tho just setting it like that might not work 100%, so better use
ido-ubiquitous, which should hopefully deal with the special cases (I
have no idea whether it does, tho).
