Feature suggestion for switch-buffer

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.5.1 (i386-redhat-linux-gnu, X toolkit)
 of Mon Feb 21 2000 on porky.devel.redhat.com
configured using `configure  --prefix=/usr --libexecdir=/usr/lib 
--sharedstatedir=/var --with-gcc --with-pop --with-x-toolkit 

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I have a feature suggestion for switch-buffer.
Suppose I have two buffers, "foo-one" and "foo-two".
If I'm looking at foo-one, and type:

    C-x b foo TAB

it would be convenient if "foo-two" appeared in the minibuffer.  That
is, I think it would make sense for switch-buffer to assume that I
don't want to switch to the buffer I'm currently viewing; the current
buffer could be removed from the list of completions unless it is the
last completion item -- "foo-o TAB" should still complete correctly.

This is a small thing, but whenever I run into this situation I find
myself wanting it.
