Hmm, I'm not sure that completion even has a generic notion of
words as such.  Each completion just parses the command line, generally
(but not necessarily) starting with a single command line word as
entered so far --- in this case parsed according to shell rules by
the lexical analyser, this is hard-wired because it's extremely
complicated --- and then takes it from there. I can't think of a point
where it matches neatly onto a single interface that tells you the bits
of what you're looking at.

Did you have an example?
