I stopped using semantic as I found it tripping over too often (in
parsing files, not in completion candidates). But I'm using javascript
and php and last I heard it doesnt really work with either.And I dont
know what a "bovine thingy" is ;) ...

So here's related completion stuff - it probably could be cleaned up.

from my .emacs equivalent:

  (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/auto-complete")
  (require 'auto-complete)
  (require 'auto-complete-config)
  (add-to-list 'ac-dictionary-directories "~/.emacs.d/auto-complete/dict")
   ac-sources '(

  (global-auto-complete-mode t)

and in my custom.el

 '(ac-auto-show-menu 0.1)
 '(ac-auto-start 5)
 '(ac-candidate-limit 10)
 '(ac-dictionary-files (quote ("~/.dict" "/etc/dictionaries-common/words")))
 '(ac-menu-height 20)
 '(ac-modes (quote (emacs-lisp-mode lisp-interaction-mode c-mode cc-mode 
c++-mode java-mode malabar-mode clojure-mode scala-mode scheme-mode ocaml-mode 
tuareg-mode haskell-mode perl-mode cperl-mode python-mode ruby-mode 
ecmascript-mode javascript-mode js-mode js2-mode php-mode css-mode 
makefile-mode sh-mode fortran-mode f90-mode ada-mode xml-mode sgml-mode 
jde-mode org-mode jde-mode latex-mode ledger-mode mail-mode message-mode 
 '(ac-use-fuzzy nil)
 '(ac-user-dictionary-files (quote ("~/.dict" 

I have only good things to say about auto-complete and its support.
