Earlier, I forgot to tell you that I had visited your page (this is
where I learned the "scatter" alias) and for the record I'm
(re)implementing your "Scatter-Match (Flex) Completion" thing:


Tho the equivalent regexp I'm using here is ".*a.*b.*c.*" not "a.*b.*c"
as your page states.  Anyway, what kind of scoring, if any, do you
use for sorting the matches to that particular completion style?
