If you really want to save keystrokes do this
sudo vim /etc/X<tab>xo<tab>

Did you see that if you to tab without a program name it does not list
files but only directories? Sort of neat and I did not know about

Directories and executables. Also, a lot of program parameters are
specially configured in ubuntu to display the relevant list. Try:

sudo apt-get <tab><tab>

This works provided you have bash_completion enabled. See the
file /etc/bash.bashrc. The bash completion code is
in /etc/bash_completion. Oddly, on my system (Hardy) the completion
code was commented out in bash.bashrc.
