I thought your try-completion-old was a better, more comprehensive
solution than mine. But I agree the name is poor. Why not call it
PC-try-completion? Also, shouldn't it return STRING, rather than "",
for an exact match? I think it must be the right solution for the
'sequencep t' problem, and should be installed.

With regards to the partial completion erasing buffer thing, I don't
know if we need to tweak completion-base-size, apply the complex fix,
or both.

I have little idea how anyone can have used partial completion for
much of anything, given all the problems it seems to have.
