Not that much.  If you remember, I submitted a patch for one of the
earlier versions, right before I worked on company.  The reason was that
I came up with the overlay-based tooltip, because regular tooltips were
(are) too slow on my system.  At that time CompletionUI didn't seem
stable (and fast)  enough for the amount of stuff I wanted to change.

Great.  I guess that proves I did a good job at the interface.  ;)

I would love to have a standardized interface, though.  That would be a
good place to start.
