Following enhancement to console TAB autocomplete's behaviour would be much appreciated.
Given:

red>> compl

pressing TAB currently returns:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> compl

it would be very useful if in addition to words proposal, it would also autocomplete the common part of the proposed words, in above case:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> comple

even better would be if further TAB pressed would cycle thru the proposed words until the ENTER key is pressed.

red>> compl

TAB:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> comple

TAB TAB:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> complement

TAB TAB TAB:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> complement?

TAB TAB TAB TAB:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> complete-from-path

TAB TAB TAB TAB TAB ENTER:

red>> complement complement? complete-from-path 
red>> complement 

With a SPACE char auto added after the selected word.

This would be a nice improvement, but this is very low-priority for now, so probably after we reach beta stage (unless @qtxie tells me that this can be done in less than 30mn) ;-)

Such features would take too much time to implement right now, so we are deferring it to a later stage in the future. I have put a reference to this ticket to the wiki, so I am closing the ticket now as there is no point in leaving it open until we get back to it (then we can re-open it).
