My tongue in cheek answer was about the weakness of the Org Cite _Basic_
library. I totally understand your need for a serious completion
mechanism that can handle thousands of entries. I was merely pointing
out that this is not the scope of the demo for the interface I wrote.
I hope, however, that really useful tools will be written from that

Anyway, I'll try to provide something a little more useful out of the
box, based on your comment and Bruce D'Arcus suggestion.

Sorry for not being clear!
