  If the code is moved to say insertText it'd be the same problem, just further down the line.
  I could overload replaceText, with the overload taking a view parameter with the responsibility of deciding which replaceText to use falling on the caller; (which is something KDevelop wants to avoid to ease their integration). The thing is, this piece of code needs a home somewhere.
  - replaceText shouldn't use typeChars because the latter is interactive by design
  - replaceText shouldn't be over-clever and do something different/unexpected depending on the selection in the activeView()
  The work of inserting the completion falls on executeCompletionItem, so it should be handled there; also note that executeCompletionItem will become more complicated anyway, because of the remove-tail functionality...
