Yeah, the autocompletion logic can only "see" the current line of input,
so in your second example it has no idea that this is an ALTER TABLE
command.  My recollection is that there's no very nice way around that
given the limitations of the readline callback interface, though maybe
if somebody got ambitious they could improve it.
