If so, I think this change is unacceptable -- the only sane way to
search for characters in huge unicode name space with the existing
completion code is to use "*".

Because of the way unicode characters named, using large numbers of
"noise" words, it's often surprisingly hard to remember the true name of
a character, much less find it given a vague idea, if one is required to
type the name in order...
