Not the way I did it.  You were doing the escaping in the wrong place
IMHO --- the string passed to _complete_from_query() mustn't be escaped
already, because it is not only used to send a command to the backend,
but also to compare against the strings returned by the backend, which
won't be escaped.  So the escaping needs to be done internally to
_complete_from_query(), and that eliminates the side-effects elsewhere.
