But the above I meant that I don't understand the relevance of your
answer.  In the scenario of `string-multibyte-p` vs `multibyte-string-p`
or `absolute-file-name-p` vs `file-name-absolute-p` there is no "look
over the results".  I only do (or want to do) TAB completion.

Neither one nor the other.  Nobody is talking about *replacing* anything
(other than replacing some names with others, admittedly ;-)
