Oh, I missed that. Thanks.
What do people think about adding "set -o tabcomplete" to /etc/shrc?
Changing tabcomplete to treat the first word specially (look for
commands instead of files)?
Implementing braceexpand? (Which should definitely be off in sh's
built-in defaults, because it breaks script compatibility.)
If all that was done, I could stop using bash.
