I was planning on fixing up some of the short comings in my code
sometime soon. Perhaps we should coordinate efforts?  Like you, when I
first wrote the completion stuff, I didn't really know how to use tla
that well, so I mostly focused on the parts I had actually used.

Also, that was my first real elisp program, so I still need to read
the Emacs Lisp style guidelines.
