Florian: I've proposed a patch to use the string property
:completion-score to attach a numerical score to the completion

needed to score completion candidates) but I will propose it on
emacs-devel once Stefan reviews it.

Nice idea. You mean text properties on the strings?

So I would use something like

(defun string-score-higher (a b)
  (if (> (or (get-text-property 0 :completion-score a) 0)
         (or (get-text-property 0 :completion-score b) 0))
    (string-lessp a b)))

as a sorting predicate?

Seems to work (so far),
