Re: XML completion module version 0.3

I wrote it this way mostly due to some of my human factors background.
With the multiple cursors there is a more direct mapping from the keys
pressed on the keyboard and the characters that appear in the text
buffer. If I only auto-close on the > character being closed, a bunch of
characters just appear in the buffer all at once.

That being said, I do see how this is in some way a matter of personal
preference. You'll probably want to use the completeClosingTagBracket
function bound to the > character.
