I don't mean to hijack this thread.  But this touches upon something I

I would like my completions (of command names) sorted alphabetically
(but with the most recent used ones given a higher preference).  The
current sorting mechanism - sort by length, sort lexicographically - is
confusing.  The primary reason for the confusion is the difficulty in
"anticipate"-ing what one is presented with.  One really doesn't know
how far deep down in the dictionary one is.

Anyways, just a minor tangential comment.
