Shouldn't be that bad, try:

Also barred foos.

My suggestion:
Enter -> Always insert linebreak no matter what the expansion list matches
Space -> Always insert space no matter what the expansion list matches
Tab -> Use autocompletion (my first choice)
Ctrl-Space -> Use autocompletion (my second choice)

Don't forget:
Ctrl-Enter -> Confirm dialog without having to "navigate" to OK first
Esc -> Abort dialog

I think having the list there is better.
