The output formatting can change and vary. But it has nothing to do with the back-end core of the smart suggestion procedure. So, we can track and discuss more about the output formatting here, and leave the other parts to task #15799.

I tried using them. But there is a problem. It looks like the 'COMPREPLY' values are treated as literal strings. That is why the ANSI color coding does not work as expected. There might be a workaround.
