I would be grateful for clarification on the intended use of
and differences between the fields aka, mail-aka and
mail-name.  Could aka, which is already supported by
bbdb-complete-list, be used instead of or in addition to
mail-name for the purpose I describe?  For example,
including the value of mail-name in the aka field permits
both completion on and formatting of the Latinised name.

I just realised that passing the candidates to
bbdb-mua-summary-unify is an unnecessary remnant from when I
was using EUDC as an interface to BBDB, as bbdb-dwim-mail
already uses bbdb-mail-name.
