It's sometimes desirable to edit binary files, but it's certainly
annoying to have them interfere with completion.  I think it's a
judgement call that should be made by someone experienced with that sort
of file (who that is, I don't know).

But emacs ought to provide good defaults.

`hexl-find-file' is a special case, and probably ought to override
completion-ignored-extensions if it can, because it's typically used for
editing files you normally don't want to edit.
