That would be a terrible idea. That would mean not showing *Completions*.

If the value is `lazy' and you see [Next char not unique], that message just
lets you know that there are completions; hitting TAB a second time then shows

If your suggestion were to just not show the message [Next char not unique] when
icomplete-mode is on, that would be different. In that case, OK. Yes, that
message is not really needed if icomplete-mode is showing possible completions.

But we certainly do not want to suppress display of *Completions* just because
icomplete-mode is on. That would be crazy.
