I gave some what I see as suboptimal examples. In this case, it's that, for example, rot13-string is sorted before string-to-syntax or string-prefix-p. But that's easy to fix: just ding all non-prefix matches's scores by 1.

Fine. You contend that
newbies use completion. Fine, then mix in info from the manual
into the sorting/grouping of completion results. Newbies prefer
API lists by topic? Then let's make those pretty lists from the
manual, again.

I'm curious to see how that would look in code.
