(feature request?) after "do" tab completion does not work


i find myself typing something like the following a lot:

for f in *.ps ; do ps2[tab]

(the final line looks like
for f in *.ps ; do ps2pdf $f ; done)

at the point [tab] of the command line i would like for bash to have a tab completion working. unfortunately "do" is probably treated as a command already and the tab after "ps2" is searching in completion rules for "do". unfortunately i have all completion switched off due to latency issues when typing, nevertheless this should probably be correctly treated by the default completion, even more so since "do" is a language keyword...
