but I still think this is a bit confusing. Typing 'cd' and then
pressing ^Xh says 'tags in context :completion::complete:cd::', which

correct way of defining different (individual) completions for 'cd' and other

Ok, I tried this but I didn't see any difference from the standard
completion... Could this have something to do with menu completion and

want to complete for my named dirs.
