[Nano-devel] New Feature: completion from external dictionary

Hi Devs!

The attached patch is not intended for inclusion as is. I'm sending it
just to get comments about the behaviour of such a feature. I'll clean
it up and send a complete version as soon as we reach a consensus
about how this should work.

Current implementation loads a file specified per syntax in nanorc.
Currently I'm just adding "extendsyntax c completer tags" to my
.nanorc and making sure that I have a tags file on the directory where
I run nano. This is good enough to have it working in a "project-like"

It is still missing the ability to reload the dictionary only if its
date has been changed, but that will be my next change.

Any objections to this approach?

Also, should I send this patch through savannah?
