Minor feature request: restriction of auto-complete list to smaller list of functions


In CS161, students are instructed to use only a small subset of all available functions of Lisp. We should probably prepare a short reference on how to modify the editor configuration (and/or how to distribute this modified configuration) such that CS161 TAs can restrict the list of Lisp functions that appear in the auto-complete list.

This can currently be achieved by editing the lisp.xml file found in the config directory in the install folder. However, I can add support for reading from a plain text file and/or a website. What would you like to be implemented?

It will probably be sufficient to have instructions for TAs describing how to modify the lisp.xml file and how to have students use the modified XML file. Reading from a website-posted list of functions would be really cool, though I'm not sure if it would be a necessary feature. (Though perhaps such a feature could be hidden in a preferences / tools dialog somewhere).

If you assign this bug to me, I could take care of writing the TA documentation in the next week or so.
