Is there a way to make bash more TAB friendly?

I use bash on both my Mac and as my cygwin shell. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it.

"To get the ‘cycle through possible completions’ behavior, copy the following into an appropriate place in your .bashrc file:

[[ $- = *i* ]] && bind TAB:menu-complete

Also, bash-completion provides many extra kinds of completion besides just pathname completion. For example, menu-complete works fine with Git's bash-completion module to complete command names, option names, etc."
