As Guillaume pointed out, the code completion comes from psql. pgAdmin
uses the same source code to avoid having to maintain a separate
engine. Once psql gains the ability to autocomplete SELECT column
names (which I believe is unlikely to happen, as without knowing the
table name, even a moderately sized database could end up listing
thousands of columns), then we'll update the pgAdmin source tree with
the latest and greatest from psql.
