Name Completion software

    Does anyone have a non-proprietary lisp implementation of support
    for NAME-COMPLETION?  I am NOT particularly interested in a
    user interface (echoing, line-editing) for name complettion, but
    in the underlying support for keeping track of a moderately large
    (several 1000s) collection of names so that it can be rapidly
    indexed based on the leading string.

    (A user interface would be gladly accepted as well, however.)


I assume that

(accept `((member ,@*list-of-names*) :description "a name"))

isn't satisfactory for one reason or another?
