[erlang-questions] Redirect -remsh output

It's not that there's a lack of tab expansion, it's just that the
expansions are being calculated on the wrong node. As far as I can tell,
they're getting calculated on the group_leader? (local) node and not the
evaluator node (remote).

http://github.com/mfoemmel/erlang-otp/tree/master/lib/stdlib/src/edlin_expand.erl
at line 45 and 51 probably just needs to ensure Mod:module_info() and
code:loaded() get evaluated on the right node. 

I'm not completely sure of my terminology here (evaluator node
vs. group_leader/IO node), but I think that's the problem.

Cheers,
