In my case I do not use completion, but maybe I would, would that be
possible. I am using tabulated list mode, and have parent nodes with
children which may be launched or used depending on what I want.

Those are database nodes, and each have its ID and each have its
type. Those which have the type "Set" are those which may accept

The Set then is related to various other objects, it can be related to
people, it can be assigned to single person, to business, or group of
individuals or group of businesses, it may have some information
similar to bibliography, it could have its expiry date, tags, author,
permissions, including revision, language, it could have some
hyperlink, action status such as TODO/COMPLETED, it could be related
to domain name, or get related license, or a report of completion. It
can have its description and text as larger information related to the

How it could be launched?

- for sending purposes, it could be chosen or selected similar to MIME
  so that all related sub-nodes or children get packed, compiled
  together and sent as a package to somebody by email;

- In case of documents being shared, it could share each document one
  by one, instead of all of them being packed and shared at once;

- it can be sent by email, with description and list of sub-nodes, but
  without including the sub-node objects;

- A Set can be opened as a directory by one click.

- In case of videos being played, it could represent a playing
  list. When launched, it could play one by one media files. In other
  words, Set could have its own types.

- In case of geographic positions, it could be launched to show the
  map of related geographical locations and their designations as
  parsed from sub-nodes;

- It could be simple opened to show the list of sub-nodes;

- It could represent or form the index or front page, depending of the
  type; with related sub-nodes following it;

- In case of documents to be published, it could publish all related
  sub-nodes when launching it;

- In case of taking the reference to all sub-nodes, it could create
  list of referencs to sub-nodes for further sharing so that people
  may access it.
