~rjarry/aerc#105: 
Exact match mode for the completion fuzzy search

As of today, when searching the completion menu, we have two options, either search for consecutive characters starting from the beginning of the string, or to fuzzy search.

However, fzf, for example, also has the so called exact mode, which will search for consecutive characters anywhere in the string.

E.g., if we have the following menu items:

Archive/aaron
Archive/abrakadabra
Archive/aerc

then as of now, to select the aerc folder, we will either have to enter archive/ae with the fuzzy-complete option disabled, or aerc with the fuzzy-complete option enabled.

However, if we had something like fzf's exact mode, then just ae would be enough.

What do you think, would it be possible to add such option?
