  Can't distinguish between identical commands in HUD

Bug description:
  Having started playing with the HUD,  I've encountered the following
  issue.  I'm using thunderbird, but also have evolution installed on my
  machines.  When I start to type "comp" in the HUD, I see

  Messages->Compose new message
  Messages->Compose new message

  as well as other choices.  One corresponds to telling thunderbird to
  create a new mail, the other, however, starts evolution to try to send
  mail.  As I'm using thunderbird, I really don't want to start a
  different package to send a message.

  There needs to be some means of dealing with this, without having to
  guess what the difference is.  One possibility is to put the app name
  in parens if there's multiple identical choices.  Another is to prefer
  a running app that provides the command.  Both might make the most
