How would it work on Unix? I assume that the command-line program just
takes it's input "from the command line", so it doesn't get invoked
until after you've finished typing the command...

Unless this is a proposal to create a console version of hoogle, a bit
like ghci, which could take advantage of System.Console.Readline.

BTW, on Windows XP command line filename completion is enabled - just
use the Tab key. On NT4 and W2K you have to tweak the registry to switch
it on (and you can choose which key to use, if you don't like Tab).
