OK, there was a change (by user request) in .12 to merge all namespaces in 
completions.  Now it turns out you don't like it :)  It should be possible to 
make this configurable, though by default the behavior will be the new one. 
But I'll give you a flag you can set to restore the old one.  Give me a few 
days though.  And I'll wrap the matcher addition into a simple public function.
