Oh... the Tab key would insert a Tab if there was no matching completion; don't know how to handle a case where the previous characters are an expansion but you really want a Tab. Hmmmm...

My preference is to keep Esc.
TextMate also uses Esc for completion (it uses Tab for so-called tab triggers but that's something else).
If it has to change, then user configurable would certainly be preferable!
