To expand on this a bit: I am trying to write an autocomplete widget which can
display autocomplete suggestions from several sources. The source provides the
entry and the action corresponding to the entry. Current sources we have are:
- Bookmarks / history
  label = page title, value = URL
  Selecting it loads the page directly
- Personal search history (previous search terms used by this user)
  label = search term
  Selecting it runs the search again, using the default search engine
- Web search (Google) suggestions
  Selecting it runs the search, using the search engine that suggested the
  term. The engine may be e.g. Google, Yahoo, Wikipedia or Amazon, *and*
  we mix them together in the results, i.e. a Google and a Wikipedia result
  may appear in the same list.

Of course, this is just my usecase, but you can easily imagine other usecases
in other areas, which have the same problem.
