In the new Eclipse JDT "subword completion" is supported. Can this be implemented in NetBeans too?

Proposed patch for subword completion
@NetBeans-Dev: Please have a look at the patch and discuss. I know that this is an enhancement and currently there is feature freeze. Maybe a feature for the next release?
Examples for supported completion ('|' shows the carret):
org.openide.util.Utilities.acoh| -> actionsForPath
java.lang.System.out| -> setOut
argex| -> IllegalArgumentException
java.util.Collections.que| -> asLifoQueue
* add option in options dialog (or commandline switch/feature toggle)
* improve performance (regex is compiled every time)
* 'better' matching results must be at the top of result list (i guess this is out of scope of this issue)

Improved patch. Now supports uppercase characters as landmarks.
For example: 'java.lang.System.sIn|' -> 'setIn' will be completed
