up to selecting on item out of many, just through typing its name and possible use the arrow-keys additonally.

typing to narrow down current selection should neither interfer with ordinary users default behaviour of using a mouse to select an item among many - nor it should need a trigger.

first step could be, since all result-lists are ordered alphabetically, one could just use the first letter to allow users jumping through lists by programmatic scrolling.
