Printing the completions with a number preceding them allows their selection by passing an argument to the menu-complete function.

A potential use case is for the quick selection of one of many completions. The possible completions are listed with possible-completions (e.g., <Esc>=) then the completion is selected using an argument, e.g., for completion 21 the user would type <Esc>21<Tab> assuming <Tab>is mapped to menu-complete.

Note the edits were made starting from the commit 45cccbbc0e696f9c9d2dd644cf38b4533fc8d0f8 (the head of the devel branch at this time of writing).
