Ah yes, that looks much nicer! The only catch is that it doesn't do
tab-completion on arguments to the program... or rather, it does do
tab-completion, but assumes the only arguments will be other programs.

It suffers from the same problem ion's query menu does, which is that it
tries to reinvent the wheel (which is to say, tab completion).  Still, it's
close to as good as ion3's query menu, which itself is good enough that I
haven't yet gotten around to replacing it (although it annoys me almost
every time I use it), so I suppose for now it'll do.
