This sounds great. I'm guessing the current system, where you can type 
in the listbox wouldn't permit pasting a word, so any kind of visible 
textbox would be an improvement.

I've got 5 new TEI P5 dictionaries in progress, some small, some large, 
and one that has about 700000 entries (over 200mb uncompressed BEFORE 
the addition of markup).
