But since different styles can be used at different times, because of
a slightly different pattern, I think we should try to avoid it, despite
its being "inevitable".  Also I'm playing with a "multi" completion
style which internally combines the output of several other
completion styles, so it could lead to really odd result if they don't
use the same face-scheme.

Not sure what you mean here.
