Hm, no, not really.  Maybe I am blind (happens too often anyway), but here
only user@host and option completions are done.  But maybe - from looking
at the tcsh-code - it was not clear what I meant.

Say I press TAB after this:
 $ scp foo me@bar:/usr/local/_
Then I would like to see the files and directories on the remote host "bar",
but what I see is the possible completions for my own host.
