I would think that an exact match should trump all others, and only after
that an error occurs on ambiguities. (I suppose cycles are cheap these days
but it seems expensive to exhaustively check every single abbrev vs. all
other options' possible abbrevs. but I guess it is safer than leaving it
to the eye of the programmer)


ps- slightly off-topic, but I'd like to keep discussion of this one alive:
 "proposal to improve module wxGUI tab logic"
