   No objection, but a comment and a question. Text completion requires
knowing some part of the desired string. A list from which to selecte one
account requires knowing nothing about their numbers or names. Is the latter
that much more difficult (or time consuming) to implement?

   I know nothing about BUI forms; in the Python/wxPython applications I
build a pick-list is one of the available data entry widget types. Perhaps
that's not as easy to do with a web framework.
