Genera 8.1, Clim 1.1
On the Symbolics, there is no *completion-characters* but there is *complete-characters*.
Is the documentation wrong or ahead of the implementation?
Use *COMPLETE-CHARACTERS*. One or the other is wrong, but it doesn't
matter because the name has been change in CLIM 2.0 anyway.
binding *complete-characters* and declaring it special does not seem to affect
completing-from-suggestions. Is it only to affect complete-input? Do I have to bind it
outside of my accept method?
Sigh, there's an optimization in CLIM in the form of a variable called
*MAGIC-COMPLETION-CHARACTERS*. If you bind *COMPLETE-CHARACTERS*, you
will also need to bind *MAGIC-COMPLETION-CHARACTERS* to
(append *complete-characters* *help-characters* *possibilities-characters*)
