Yep, the syntax feels clunky to me. Some things don't lend themselves
well to representation in a flat list, and definitions from files --
which happen on a many-to-many relationship -- are one of them.

Though in fairness you can skip the TAB-pressing if you use another
completing-read interface, such as fido-mode.
