Notebook: tab completion should close on "(" #1080

When typing the following in the notebook:

np.si<TAB>n(

I expect to see: a list of np.si* completions, then limit those selections to np.sin, and then--as soon as I type the bracket--that bracket should appear on the prompt so that I have np.sin(. This doesn't currently happen.

@Carreau, do you know a quick fix?

fix on its way... here is a list of test that should work (FF and chrome mainly)

#test direct one completion
plt.an<tab>  --> plt.annotate
====
#test filter,tab, only one completion
plt.a<tab>n<tab>  --> plt.annotate
===
# test partial common beggining
plt.a<tab>nn<backspace><backspace>u<tab> -> completer to aut
........................................<tab><tab><tab>
# test dismmised if user erase
.......................................................<backspace><backspace<backspace> -> complter cancelled
===
plt.s<tab>c -> completer 3 choices
...........u -> dismissed whith what user have typed. ( plt.scu)
===
# opt-in list of caracters +-/\()[].
np<tab>.s    -> a 'dot' sould dismiss the completer and be appended
..............<tab>in(  -> np.sin(
np.s<tab>in[  -> np.sin[

I never thought i'll came across so much edge case depending on the browser... do you see any more caracer beside +-/\()[]. that might be usefull to add to the list ?
I preferd an opt-in approche to avoid previous bug of pasting unknown caracters that might make the bug harder to track.

@Carreau Carreau usability and cross browser compat for completer
	- dissmiss the completer, append what alredy type, **Plus** one caracter in
	  some cases

	  List of special caracter that are handle are in a given list `()[]./\-+`
	  for the moment. usefull for exaple when typing :
	  >>> np.s<tab>in(
	  and not having to type '(' twice.

	  they are handle separately has the [a-zA-Z] ones because otherwise they
	  will screw up the regexp, and are opt-in to avoid bugs with invisible
	  caracters send because some browser have 'keypress' event for meta keys

	  close #1080
