Damn :) my email is in a changelog :D Thanks :)

One thing though, is it possible to stop the cursor at the point it
gets ambiguous? As in I have function
foobar and fooBar if I do
foo<tab> I will get foobar and if my intent was to execute fooBar I
will have to go back and uppercase it. I think it would be better if
you stopped at foo and gave the completion options there, then if I
wrote b<tab> I'd get foobar or B<tab> I'd get fooBar.
