I don't know what complications you're referring to.

In 99% of the cases you can just turn

    (defun foo (&optional arg)
      (interactive "P")
      (let ((bar (org-icompleting-read ...)))))


    (defun foo (bar &optional arg)
       (list (org-icompleting-read ...) current-prefix-arg))

I'm not saying it's always perfect, but there's clearly some difference
between my experience and yours, so if you give some examples, it would help.
