Hi all,

I have a TextInput where the user enters host names and/or IP addresses. So 
naturally, I'd like to offer some mechanism that allows the user to quickly 
pick from recently used entries. GUI-wise, the best way to do that seems to be 
the autocomplete of the keyboard, since normally I'd just deactivate 
prediction completely for this type of input. So instead of just deactivating 
it, the better choice would be to feed it a simple word list that offers input 
hints for recently used host names and IP addresses. Any idea how to do that?
