>From a display point of view, I think the "tty menus" approach is indeed
the cleanest solution when running on a tty.  But they can't be used
as-is for lack of flexibility w.r.t key-bindings and appearance (we
don't really need borders for Company menus, but we do need control
over colors).

In a GUI frame, OTOH, we'd be much better off with a GUI window
(something akin to a tooltip frame).
