There are currently two patches proposed, and I presume either patch would satisfy the likes of David Beazley. The first patch is more complex (extending the Completer constructor), while the second is simple. Perhaps it is okay to commit either one, and then continue discussing and refining the behaviour afterwards?

So far it looks like the only dilemma is that Martin Sekera wants to avoid the multiple backspacing and duplicating terminal behaviour, but David Murray wants to avoid the terminal copying tabs. My weak preference is with Martin’s simpler patch and relying on the Readline and the terminal to handle questions of tab stops and copied text.
