Hello All, 

1) I'm proposing a patch to do the DROP FUNCTION argument tab completion.
Now, the arguments of the drop function can be tab completed. for example

drop function strpos (
<press tab>
drop FUNCTION strpos (text, text)


wsdb=# drop FUNCTION length (      
bit)        bytea)      character)  lseg)       path)       text)
<press c>
wsdb# DROP FUNCTION length ( character) 

I think that this patch should be rather useful. At it least I hate 
always to type all the arguments of the dropped functions.

2) Also some fixes applied for the 

now the parenthesises are inserted by tab pressing. 
suppose I have the table q3c:
wsdb=# \d q3c
          Table "public.q3c"
 Column |       Type       | Modifiers 
 ipix   | bigint           | 
 ra     | double precision | 
 dec    | double precision | 

Now if I do 
wsdb# create index xxx on q3c 
<press tab>
wsdb# CREATE INDEX xxx on q3c ( 
<press tab>
wsdb=# CREATE INDEX xxx on q3c ( 
"dec"  ipix   ra     
<press r>
wsdb=# CREATE INDEX xxx on q3c ( ra
