To answer Martin,

a) Michael's mention of tab-completion being a common *nix feature may explain why it works on Mac OS X (which I believe he also is using) but may not work on Windows.

b) It is an Americanism to say 'your mileage may vary', as a European would more sensibly* talk about litres/kilometre than miles/gallon. But there it is.
