Actually I have things setup so that I can do filename completion in the
normal grep input minibuffer (where of course the history stores both
expression and filename); I find this setup almost perfect...

   (define-key minibuffer-local-map "\t" 'comint-dynamic-complete)

[it's also handy for `shell-command' &c -- of course commands that read
strings that _don't_ involve filenames _also_ get filename completion, but I
haven't noticed any real problem with this; maybe it would be nice to have
minibuffer input for `commands' use a specific keymap though.]

I find multiple-prompt interfaces quite annoying by contrast.

I'd rather be consing.
