Note that there are two forms of sorting: sorting for *Completion*
display, and sorting for cycling.  Currently, these are not sorted
identically (cycling sorts by string length, whereas *Completions*
sorts alphabetically).  I don't think "alphabetical" is useful for
cycling and neither do I think that "shorter first" is useful for
cycling, so I think it's important to keep them separate.
