Accessibility issue / feature request with webkit inspector:

When using tab to autocomplete javascript, completions with multiple
possibilities can not be selected unless you use the right arrow key.  It seems
to me that shift+tab would make a reasonable shortcut to accept the current

I believe this would go a long way to make using the inspector less stressful
on our hands.  

Please let me know if this will be deleted and I should submit it somewhere


Steps to reproduce:
1) View any webpage.
2) Activate Javascript Console
3) Start typing a command to autocomplete, such as document.getE
4) Hit Tab for your suggestion, notice that you can not select your suggestion
without moving your hand.
5) Think about how natural it would be to hit shift with tab to select.
