I think there are some other Emacsisms too - but I don't know enough Emacs to remember them. You can also get it to do filename completion in Open / Save As pickers - type ~ or / and it'll pop open a little panel into which you can type a filename using tab for completion.

There's the seed of an interesting category there: tech which shows signs of a geek friendly heritage. See also: Skype chat's use of IRC commands.
