Tab Completion

So I am sure this is in the wrong place but could not find
where to submit basic UI feature requests.

I think tab auto-completion should ALWAYS work, not just on
specified functions, since they are not always specified to
use tab completion. For instance, if one wants to test some
code by using the functional form of openfig, you should be
able to use tab completion instead of typing out the whole:

openfig('../data/somedir/somesubdir/somesubsubsubdir/somefile.fig','new','visible');

There are several other functions in which tab
auto-completion is not available, but it doesn't seem like
there's any really good reason.

I would be happy to submit this to the proper place. Anyone
else notice this?

Very odd: it seems that typing: dir('../<tab> activates
auto-completion (and similarly for cd), but using most other
functions (like openfig) does not. This behavior is
unchanged if one uses \ instead of /.
