  Let external tools control completion style

## Summary:

  Written by Stefan Monnier circa 2016.  Variants of this code have
  been working stably in SLY and other packages for a long time.

  The `external' completion style is used with a "programmable
  completion" table that gathers completions from an external tool
  such as a shell utility, an inferior process, an http server.

  The table and external tool are fully in control of the matching of
  the pattern string to the potential candidates of completion.  When
  `external' is in use, the usual styles configured by the user or
  other in `completion-styles' are ignored.

  This compromise is for speed: all other styles need the full data
  set to be available in Emacs' addressing space, which is often slow
  if not completely unfeasible.
