I think that depends on `completion-styles'.  If you add the `substring'
style, you don't need that, I think.

This package is not at all concerned with how the input is used to
determine the possible completions.  That's the job of the
`completion-styles'.  What you describe sounds like a request for a
style similar to `partial-completion' or `substring' where the indiviual
words can occur in any order.
