Hi Dmitry,

The second option looks pretty good, so you can just push that at will,
if no other objections.  Incidentally, I would also think it reasonable to
provide the same help text if there is a single partial match.

The first option I don't understand very well, but that's probably because
I haven't looked very closely at it, so if you can post an implementation of
your idea it would be ideal, because it doesn't sound absurd at all :-)
