FYI, the completion work I did for Evolution is in GAL, in
gal/gal/e-text/e-completion*.[ch].  I certainly don't want to claim that
this code represents an optimal solution, but it does have a two very
useful features:

* Arbitrary completion algorithms are allowed.
* Algorithms are allowed to produce completions asynchronously.

Hopefully any future GtkCompletionThingie will also have these
