huum, I'm afraid that simple widget won't do the job, and I'm not sure
you'll find anything that'll that much help you yet. The two majors 
problems I see :

* you need something that will return every indexed *word*, unless I misunderstood
  what you're trying to acheive

* the provided completion widget currently works  by fetching a list
  of *all* possible values. That doesn't seem usable in such case.
  Katia and 2web are working on similar issue for customer projects,
  so they probably can help with that one.
