hmm, yeah... the drop down is handy if I want to complete something, but it turns out that a large proportion of the time I actually just want to get a super-summarized help output, like dir but with nicer printing and one keystroke :-)

btw, while I complain and this just reminded me to file two bugs on it, the new prompt toolkit stuff is really nice
here's a lightning talk I gave at pycon where I used it:
...EEK was not expecting that giant thing, sorry!
...anyway, just wanted to say that I probably wouldn't have even tried doing that talk that way without the new prompt toolkit stuff, so thanks :-)

The "Return to editor to correct syntax error? [Y/n]" from Python 5 seems a bit annoying. Why would I want to open an editor when there is real multiline editing in the terminal now?
It's also unable to actually open my editor, although I'm not sure if that's because I have my $EDITOR set to something complicated
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `newline'
/bin/sh: -c: line 0: `emacsclient -a 'emacs-server-start' -nw --socket-name=ttys000 +1 <ipython-input-5-bea43c160ee8>'
/Users/aaronmeurer/anaconda/envs/ipython5/lib/python3.5/site-packages/IPython/terminal/ UserWarning: Could not open editor
  warn('Could not open editor')
seems like a bug tho
