Include Specific Keys to Confirm Autocomplete

Having Enter as the only autocomplete selection feels clunky these days. At the very least, the spacebar should also be included. If it's possible to do multiple shortcuts in the Shortcuts configuration tool, that might be a good place for anyone to choose the amount of laziness they'd like to enjoy. Or, you could go with a "smart" set, possibly with a toggle in the Editor preferences.

A "smart" set of choose-the-selected-item keys would probably include:
Open Parenthesis or Bracket
Maybe $? Altho it seems redundant with the Parenthesis, it would make choosing between Func( and Func$( much easier.

Of course, unlike Enter, these keys should actually result in the character being appended to the autocompleted keyword.
