Ctrl-TAB switches between tabs in tab-aware programs (such as Firefox,
WinEdt, ...) so is probably not a great idea.  Ctrl-Space is what I've
seen in other programs for this type of function: it seems to be free
(on Windows) and is not too bad to remember.  So that would give:

Tab		Next autocompletion option
Shift-Tab	Previous autocompletion option

Ctrl-Space		Next "bullet"
Shift-Ctrl-Space	Previous "bullet"

This all seems quite nice to me.
