Right, my original build of postgres did not have tab completion support as I
did not have readline (a notice at the end of the configure script would have
been nice, maybe a summary of what will and won't be supported?). However, I
love the command-line history, so readline was a must ;).

Can tab completion be disabled without disabling command line history? I
noticed -n disables both. I would gladly trade tab completion for tab
pastability, but I rely heavily on command line history.
