I hope you mean the same standard autocomplete as the file chooser but
write tab completion out of force of habit, because tab completion breaks
the use of tab to move through a dialog.

Also I hope you are using the gimp as an example of "edit" or "open with"
functionality and do not plan to mention a specific program within the
screen shooter.
