Do not block UI Thread while computing completion proposals

Run requests for completion in a dedicated thread so the UI Thread isn't blocked.

This option is useful when completion proposals are long to compute, as it will still allow to type or use other parts of the IDE in the meantime.

Opened Java file editors need to be closed and reopened for this option to be effective.
