Ack. I'll move the code from cdb to cd.
BTW, is tab completion supposed to work for files with spaces in their
name? Completing a spaced file leaves the spaces as such in the file
name (i.e. they are not escaped, quoted or anything), so that pressing
tab a second time gives the list of all files, i.e. it doesn't consider
what is already typed/completed. Adding backslashes manually to escape
the spaces doesn't help.
