No; it uses the old EOL2/TIOCSTI[*] *hack* for file name completion,
and otherwise relies on the tty driver's editing mis^Wfeatures.
[*] Actually, I just looked earlier today, and found that it uses VEOL
(rather than VEOL2) for the completion character, and relies on the
tty driver always handling \n. Is this really POSIX behaviour?
