Lush is now Rain

Lush was an interactive Racket shell I started working on this summer to learn Racket. As it turns out there is already a shell called Lush, the Lisp Universal Shell. So I decided on renaming the project to Rain: the Racket Interactive Shell.

Along with the renaming I decided to make the latest feature public. The first version of code completion just picked one completion for you and filled in the remaining characters in a light grey text next to the characters you were typing. I started working on an ncurses-like interface, and the first feature is a dropdown listbox that shows all the possible completions similar to completion widgets in other IDEs.
