Suppose I have the function

This will open a completion buffer. If I select a completion in this
buffer by clicking <mouse-2> on a completion, the selection will be
inserted in the active buffer at the position of point. How does the
insertion happen in detail?


I don't know.  Here is how I find out:

I run the code.  I position point on one of the completions and do
C-h k RET.  It tells me that it runs the command choose-completions.
I have a wild hunch that there might be a variable with a similar
name, so I type C-h v choos TAB...  Bingo!

In Emacs 21.3 I get

        Describe variable: choos [No match]

But there's always

        (defadvice choose-completion (after ...) ...)
