I want to create a minibuffer prompt that looks like:

switch-to-buffer: [1/100] 'Main.java': Mai

                          ^^^^^^^^(1) ^^(2)

Where sections:

1. Is the current hit... In this case Main.java is the entry in a list.
2. "Mai" is the input text.

I want to extend the prompt to become:

switch-to-buffer: [1/100] 'Main.java': Mai    

                          ^^^^^^^^(1) ^^(2)  


3: Is additional metainfo about this entry appended to the hit and with font-lock-comment-face so that its obvious that its just a hint

Does this make sense?  I should be able to do this with an overlay correct?
