I just applied the most recent patch locally. I think its great, but
after seeing and thinking about your non-flickering, non-setTimeout
approach, I think that approach is worth taking. Further, I think it
would be fine to take that approach without needing to rewrite

The reason I feel this is because:
  - the console completion must be async (results come from the inspected page)
  - the CSS completion is a static list of known values

We can optimize TextPrompt in the future to try to perform
the non-flicker autocompletion. It can do this by doing some
parsing of the string (as is already done) and determining if
the last set of results can be reused (no-flicker), or if a new
list must be fetched (flicker).

Still, its great to do small patches, so I think step 1, non-flicker
CSS autocompletion would be awesome. Think you can create
a new patch for this?
