Let's say I have packages
eu.
eu.voyda.
eu.voyda.appName
eu.voyda.appName.view
eu.voyda.appName.data
eu.voyda.appName.net
...more packages

Let's say I want to ad new class and select as package 'eu.voyda.appName.view' (select a package window opened) .
When you are using mouse it may be simple, but if you want to use only keyboard (in most cases it's more efficient and generally its good habit) there is no way to easily select 'view' package.
I have to write at least whole prefix 'eu.voyda.appName.v'.
It would be much more productive if search text would be based on whole text, not only the prefix so ex. typing just letter 'vi' would leave much less packages to choose from.

Besides we could add similar completion directly in "New ActionScript Class " (see attached image)

So actually we can make it consistent with 'selecting super class' window and also extend by autocompletion feature.
In my opition 'Source folder', 'package', 'Superclass' have similar functionality so all of those should have same search mechanic + autocompletion directly in "Create Actionscript class" wndow
