Completion sucks anyway. Setup aliases and type the
aliases instead: style, precision, speed.

Like this:

;; For example,  for mail addresses, .mailrc  can look
;; like this:
;;   alias john    "John DiFool <>"
;;   alias kate    "Katherine Moss <>"
;;   alias friends john kate
;; For Usenet groups, setup ordinary abbrevs:
;;   (let*((write  '( ... )) ; other abbrevs
;;         (groups '(("geh" "")
;;                   ("geg" "gnu.emacs.gnus")
;;                   ; ...
;;                   ("ges" "gnu.emacs.sources")))
;;         (both (append write groups)))
;;     (define-abbrev-table 'global-abbrev-table both) )

This rant is a waste of energy - just set the keys to
whatever you want.

Really? Can you quote that?
