Thank you very much for pointing it out. I put a pre-commit hook
to check that not to do such a mistake again.

It was the motive for this, but even excluding it, some syntaxes
with optional keywords can be simplified or enriched with the new
macros. CREATE SCHEMA's schema elements, CREATE INDEX and some
other syntaxes are simplified using the feature.

I suppose it is "create table if ", with a space at the tail. It
is a general issue on combined keywords(?) suggestion in the
whole tab-completion mechanism (or readline's limitation). Some
sytaxes have explicit complition for such cases. For examle,
"create foreign " gets a suggestion of "DATA WRAPPER" since it
has an explcit suggestion step.

It is apparently solvable, but needs additional code to suggest
the rest words for every steps. It should be another issue.
