The point being that perhaps it should not be bound to a key by compinit
if it's not in the completer list by default ...

It's too bad those things have to be wedged into the context string.
It feels as though they should be somewhere else.

I don't think I like having two such suffixes on the same completer.

} Yes, I once thought about using a different group, too. Hadn't thought

} uneasy about it is that this would make it even more complicated.
I'm not especially worried about it being complicated for people who are
deep enough into it to be writing functions that use alternate sets. The
people who have to configure it are the ones who should get off easy.
(Back when we first started discussing the new completion system, my idea
was that lots of people would need to write their own completers, and I
was worried about making the functions easy to understand. Now we have a
huge library of highly configurable functions, so hardly anyone is going
to need to write one ... it _should_ be easier to configure the ones we
have than it is to write new ones ...)
