Do you think it would be difficult to add some kind of completion backend
to complete the package names when typing `library(` ?


More seriously: We do something like that already in ESS for quite a
while now.... but I don't recall the details.

I suspect Martin knows this, but ...

        C-c C-e C-l

runs ess-load-library.

With `ido' enabled, it puts a list in the minibuffer where fuzzy matching will narrow it down to the package one wants. Hitting TAB will display all the package names that fuzzily match in a completion buffer.

Thanks for reminding me of the nifty feature!
