Personally, I'd say yes and no. The idea makes sense in theory, because
you're using the insert/overwrite status to determine whether to
insert/overwrite. However, I almost always want the overwrite behaviour
for completion (which I think Eclipse indicates it is going to do by
highlighting or selecting the text it is about to wipe as well) but I
want my typing to insert. On the odd occasion when I don't want to
overwrite then I just make sure I have a space in the way.
