+completion'' table that gathers completions from an external tool such as
+a shell utility, an inferior process, an HTTP server.  The table and external
+tool are fully in control of the matching of the pattern string to the
+potential candidates of completion.  When @code{external} is in use, the usual
+styles configured by the user or other in @code{completion-styles} are
+ignored.  This compromise is for speed: all other styles need the full data
+set to be available in Emacs addressing space, which is often slow if not
+completely unfeasible.")
