Configurable minimum word length before auto-complete kicks in

Currently, auto-complete will pop up as soon as you type a single character; however, this generally doesn't lead to very meaningful completions and can be more annoying than helpful in certain contexts.

Although I don't know much about what makes Sublime Text tick, it seems like it should be relatively trivial to add a "auto_complete_min_word_length" option in preferences to customize this behavior.

I did not find a way to prevent the auto-completion popup to show while still being able to show them when intended, not even with modifying "sublime_plugin.py". Seems to be hardcoded or at least not pluginable.
