The `completion-boundaries' indicate which part of the overall text is
described by `all-completions'.
For example, for normal files the boundaries are delimited by the
slashes, because when you have "/usr/sha", all-completions will list
neither "/usr/share/" nor "/usr/share/emacs" but only "share/".
