Both of these have code completion.

KDevelop has a minimal, but improving code completion for C++. Even (x)Emacs
has it for SGML. Ettrich is, in principle, wrong about the speed of lisp
being an issue. Components of XEmacs can and are witten in C and recently
even C++. The reason why Emacs lacks it is the people who maintain it do see
it as useful.
