In your .emacs Do:
    (require 'complete)            ;;Better completions for Emacs
    (partial-completion-mode 1)    ;;start it now
The 1st line may be redundant because `partial-completion-mode' is
auto loaded. Now $foo<tab> will expand to your environment variable.

That is a real problem.

Would you like to contribute code that does it ?

Ehud.
