I think it isn't...

...but why wouldn't simply adding $filenames to their "complete" calls be the
right thing to do? The above sounds somewhat messy to me and personally I'd
rather start thinking about getting rid of most of _filedir's current contents
(when we can assume -o plusdirs) than adding more hair that duplicates
existing functionality to it.
