Name completion

The verb completename extracts partial name to the left from the caret from Jwd session manager, then looks up all matching names in current locale and all locales listed in current locale's path and present them in the matching box for final confirmation.

Bind this verb to a key and use the key as a shortcut to complete partially typed names.
