Trigger '?' resolution with the tab key

Bug Description

An oft requested feature is to have

x?<TAB>

actually provide the information without the person having to type

x?<ENTER>

The implementation is probably one that will work by directly printing out the information returned by '?' and returning an empty completion list and stopping the completion process, because the readline api by default wants a list.
