I see, it's obvious now that you point it out :)  I can use that.

I would really like it to show the list of choices immediately, as if
the user pressed `TAB'.  Can that be fed into the function somehow as a
synthetic keypress?  I'd prefer to avoid modifying `completing-read' in
the source, so my code will work with older Emacsen as well.
