Also, alt-z will cancel the completion cycling, if you are going down
the wrong track.
Anyway, it would surely be reasonable to have the completion be
context-sensitive. In an IRC chat, it could cycle through user names.
While someone is adding this nice feature, they could refactor the text
editting code a little, too. :)
