It depends. Since the autocomplete dropdown is part of Scintilla (the
editing component Textadept uses), the patch would either have to be
submitted upstream for inclusion, or included in Textadept's Scintilla
patch set. The first case is easy. The second case depends on how large
the patch is because I'd have to maintain it between Scintilla versions.
Rather than having a compile-time dependency, a pure Lua implementation
would be preferrable. For example, you should be able intercept keypress
(such as spaces) and call `buffer:auto_c_select()` to select an arbitrary
item in the list.

Good luck on your exams :)
