Right.

(I'm fairly new to Emacs and still hazy on the interaction between
pieces and parts...)

The completion buffer I'm concerned about is created while using SLIME
to edit Lisp code / interact with a Lisp REPL.  Is my understanding
correct that Icicles works with any completion buffer?  (My assumption
here is that buffers named "*Completions*" are some specific Emacs
"thing" that code can interact with, which obviously may be
incorrect...)

I just realized those were the docs for some specific thing called
"Predictive," not Emacs predictive completion in general.  So they're
not relevant for what I'm trying to do.

Thanks,
