cmd-space for spotlight is a high priority system-wide key on OS X. It can't really be used by any application. Currently autocomplete cannot be triggered manually on OS X with the default setting.

in bash, autocomplete is tab, so alt-tab would be a good choice, but obviously tab is a little much used for window switching etc. Eclipse seems to use Ctrl + Space.

I privately use alt-space, and alt-shift-space for arguments-display. Nice for the hand, and I don't think it conflicts with anything on OS X. Ctrl-(shift)-space seems to be free too.

as mentioned in the commit: @telephon @bagong, please check that the modifier won't interfere with shortcuts on other platforms.
alt-based shortcuts in application-code call for trouble and should usually be avoided

Just a note: I can't do this, so I have to trust the awareness of others. Thanks for commenting it.
