psql autocomplete on windows

Is it possible to make autocomplete working in
psqlon Windows? As I know from Linux users, they can make use pressing
TABto autocomplete, which is quite handy, I guess.
psql's autocompletion comes by virtue of the readline or libedit library, whichever was configured when PostgreSQL was built from source. The Windows binaries were built without that support, most likely because there are no Windows ports of these libraries. If you port either of these libraries to Windows, you can build PostgreSQL from source and enjoy command line completion.
