bug#9598: 24.0.50; completion goes too far

    And we have been over this before[*].  People, including you, have pointed 
    the user-oriented problems with this UI design, but Stefan really wants it 
    way.  So you and other users will continue to be surprised.

I think we should poll the users about this question.  That way we can
resolve the disagreement based on something more objective.

    IOW, let users choose at completion time which completion style(s) to use, 
    demand.  Each time they change methods they can complete anew and find out
    whether there are matches using that method.

This might be too complicated an interface to be good to use.
But you could try implementing it and we could judge based
on experience.
