Description

Hello.
I played with NetBSD the other day, and found that their version of
bourne shell has a nice file name completion feature, which we don't
have. The attached patch adds `tabcomplete' option, which turns on
this file name completion feature, which defaults to off.

Is there any reason to default to off?

Also, why is -o emacs off by default?

cheers

Actually all `set -o' flags are turned off at the beginning, then only
a few of them are turned on depending on how the shell is invoked, etc.

To avoid vi vs emacs wars, I guess.
