As you requested for a single feature I will remove the remote branch
again and push one only with this commit.


I took the freedom to add one condition from your code and added it to

I didn't do this before because I was keeping the first candidate in the
same line so it made sense to keep the empty one. So after all I will
condition this condition in a future too; when I add options to
remove/change the [] and ().

I think is good for continuation lines, but I am not sure if that's
better than truncate line and horizontally scroll because in that case
the proposed candidates will be very long as well and continuing them
