Looks good to me.

I have not used myself pstricks.el for while. Just recently I noticed
that in emacs-23 a:

        (require 'cmr)

was necessary to insert to make it work again.

I thought when looking at the source again, it was way to complicated.

Of course. 

I would suggest to insert a "=" automatically when the first completion
is uniquely done or suggest a "=" when possible.

Can I be of some help?
