I guess I was expecting an API that would have allowed me to simply provide
a list of completion items leaving the means by which those items are shown
to the user up to QtWebKit. However, I see why that would not be a wise
choice. I guess a client application can listen to the
QWebPage::contentsChanged signal and create a popup menu with the
completion items by relying on these newly added classes.
