Hit tab twice. Once to complete it from the menu, and once to expand
it the snippet.

This is necessary because some snippets have the same name as other
items in the list - e.g the "if" snippet and the "if" keyword. Because
tab is also the key for completing a selection from the menu, we
require a second tab keypress to activate the template.
