following on from this, would a hybrid of the two (the terminal kb no
guesses, and the dictionary lookup kb) be possible? it can be very
frustrating to think a long word will be in the dictionary, type it,
find it's not in the dictionary, and have to delete it, switch to the
terminal kb and type it again.

when the list of possible words comes up, it would be very useful to
have the kb give the exact sequence of letters, as typed, as one
option, alongside the dictionary guesses
