I would like to see the ability to disable tab completion in ConsoleReader.

This would be particularly useful for Jython's interactive interpreter, where tab completion isn't used and actually inputting raw tab characters is a common thing.

    Actually, what would be ideal for Jython would be a way to map the tab key to send a raw tab key, instead of complete. And ideally Jline would let you rebind tab back to complete, later, during runtime

    I'm pretty much asking for key bindings, aren't I -- but at this point, for Jython, the tab key being hardcoded to complete is the main concern =]
