Are you sure you want path completion for a distributed filesystem? It's
going to be unusably slow. Path completion works well when you get the
completion within around 0.2 seconds, otherwise it is just annoying IMHO.

(Path completion for local paths passed to the tahoe command just works
already, if your shell supports it.)
