   Have a look at completing-read

   Note that when you type TAB during a completing-read, it displays all
   the available completions.

The data I am working with is fairly "rich" and completing-read does
not seem right for this sort of data.  I like the idea of having
several columns with different data fields in them, as in the Buffer
List.
