Thanks, it's not a high priority but it's something I want to
find out how to do to upgrade the input-help if I ever get
spare time and sufficient motivation...they both happen

You might want to look at the description of the hook functions in
the `Completion Variables' section of the readline manual.  Readline
does filename completion internally, and nothing else; everything
else is performed by a calling application.

You could also look at the code in bashline.c to see how bash does it.
