Sorry if I phrased my question not clearly enough. I *want* jEdit to
propose the completion γ (\<gamma>) when I type "gamma".
However, it does not do so if I type "'gamma", nor on "foo_gamma" nor

While it probably makes sense not to get a completion proposal for
"gamma" if you type "digamma", I definitely want to have a completion
proposal when I type "'gamma", and would like to have one for

But SideKick obviously interprets the content of these tables wrt. some
context. For example, it does not propose a completion within a word:
  If you type "dd", it proposes \<ddagger>, but if you type cudd, no
