The <tab> key in last line mode is now mapped to the filename completion by default. The feature itself exisits in old nvi, but was off by default. Currently, to input <tab> in last line, you can either <C-v><C-v><tab> which performs escape, or :se filec=<some other key, or empty to disable completion> The completion code is not as smart as that in vim, which can detect the context. I think at least I should limit the completion to the commands which need a filename, like next, cd, edit, script, source, read.
