In his blog entry
depesz described a simple way to do tab completion for SELECT in psql:

Make tab-completion complete also function names – like: SELECT
pg_get<tab><tab> to see all functions that start with pg_get.

Make tab-completion work for columns in SELECT. I know that when writing
SELECT clause, psql doesn’t know which table it will deal with, but it
could search through all the columns in database.

That seems pretty useful, and it's more or less a one-line change, as in
the attached patch.
