For find-file, this amounts to warning the user that she's about to open
a non-existing file, which may be exactly what she wants to do, but may also
be just the result of a typo (in my case, in 90% of the cases, it's a TAB
expansion that completed to "foo." instead of one of foo.c or foo.h, in 9%
of the cases it's a typo and in the 1% percent it's really what I want to

I see.  This is indeed an improvement on usability.  If the input can
be completed more, perhaps we should not only confirm the user about
it is non-matching, but tell the user it can be completed (although
may not be unique) as well.
