This question seems closer to being on point with the patch sets
proposed here.

This seems like it goes to a wholesale context-aware reworking of tab
completion rather than the myopic ("What has happened within the past N
tokens?", for slowly increasing N) versions of tab completions in both
the current code and in the two proposals here.

A context-aware tab completion wouldn't care how many columns you were
into a target list, or a FROM list, or whatever, as it would complete
based on the (possibly nested) context ("in a target list", e.g.)
rather than on inferences made from some slightly variable number of
previous tokens.
