[libvoikko] libvoikko and list of Finnish words

ibus-typing-booster (https://mike-fabian.github.io/ibus-typing-booster/)
is a completion input method to speedup typing.

Mike (CC'ed) kindly added Finnish spelling check support to
ibus-typing-booster recently using the Python interface to libvoikko and
this seems to be working nicely.

However, it is not clear is it possible to use libvoikko to provide list
of Finnish words for word completion with ibus-typing-booster. The
latest ibus-typing-booster utilizes the Finnish ispell dictionary from
http://ispell-fi.sourceforge.net/finnish.dict.bz2 but using this almost
20 years old dict file doesn't seem ideal.

Would this kind of functionality of providing list of Finnish words for
word completion be in scope for libvoikko and if so how to use it?

(Please feel free to ping me off-list if you need help setting up
ibus-typing-booster on Fedora.)
