We'd still need to expand the storage so that we know what we're
expanding to.

So if we have the following scenario:

Karl Fogel <address@hidden>
HAHAHA <address@hidden>

we do not want to expand to "Karl Fogel HAHAHA <address@hidden>" if
the user types "Karl".  Perhaps we even want "HAHAHA" to expand to
"Karl Fogel <address@hidden>"?  In any case, I think the way to
achieve this is to do what Karl suggests, and store all the variations
and make the user interface be clever.
