No, it would need to take input separated by spaces, now I just get `[No
match]' when I try to enter a space.  I think it's just not how
completing-read works, the idea would be for the user to be able to type

  shorttag and not long<TAB>

which would complete to

  shorttag and not longboringtagname

The point of my patch was to be able to filter using arbitrary
expressions where every non-operator, i.e. `and', `or', `not', `(', and
`)', is interpreted as a tag name.  Is there an easy way to accept this
input without sacrificing completion?
