slingshot does not have auto-completion for commands

Bug Description

Unlike the Gnome desktop environment, a very important feature is missing from the Slingshot launcher. When I type stuff like 'xkill, gnome-session-properties, etc.' it does not autocomplete and I have to type the whole thing. This is really time-consuming for those who use the run-dialog very frequently.

This is planned, at least using history of previous commands, once a proper command mode is created.

I'm going to mark this as "opinion". Slingshot is an app launcher, not a Terminal. It'll launch anything with a .desktop, any desktop actions, and any settings panes.
