Shows the CC

Items from the chained code completion (introduced in [1]) seem to have a higher priority than the standard ones. See the example in the screenshot. I wanted to code complete "revision" to "revionsToCheckout". But currently all the chained CC items are at the top and selected by default. So now I have to scroll down manually to my "revionsToCheckout" to select it. That is really annoying. 

EXPECTED: Proposal: chained CC items have a lower prio than the standard matching (because chaining is nice, but often not the intention of the developer)

Fixed in jet-main. Moving chained completion items to 'all' completion.

Receiving many complaints, after discussion with the team, we decided to provide chained completion items on the second 'Ctrl+Space'.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201305172300* on (upload may still be in progress)
