This change makes it complete files too. Unfortunately, it further
exacerbates the situation with respect to directory completion. If you
have autocd set, they already get completed twice and with this, they
get added thrice as completions after sh.

Well, the shells all accept a command as a parameter to run so it is useful
to complete commands for them. Completion in command position was somewhat
simpler when I first added _sh.
