We really should work on the completion experience instead of naming.
If I can't drive straight, I'm not going to twist the road to compensate.

So, I get along quite nicely with flex + fido-mode with the current naming.
But that doesn't mean we can't improve the completion styles to be as
good as those that have a more free-form search. Reasonably simple
ML techniques come to mind for relevancy scoring, for example.
