} I'm not too keen on the name. I'd suggest using _command and renaming

} _jobs_builtin).

I briefly considered that, but then we also ought to rename _vared to
_vared_builtin and rename _in_vared to _vared and so on and so forth,
and I just didn't want to deal with it.

As a lesser consideration, if it's named `_autocd' it's more obvious
that people who don't use autocd could replace it with something else.
} My initial thought on seeing your patch was that completion for autocd
} already works. This is because of the line in _command_names which adds
} executable files and directories.

Unfortunately that doesn't cover cdpath, and cdpath is the main reason I
have autocd set in the first place.

} This is there for completing commands by specifying the full path to
} them.

Yes, that's why I asked why _command doesn't call it.

} _cd should also possibly be adding usernames and parameters for the
} cdablevars option.

} I was about to mention the same when this mail came.  The only thing I
} can think of is to make _command_names use only -g, not -/ (it will
} revert to directory completion if there is no executable anyway).  Or
} maybe do that only if autocd is set and _command_names is called from
} _autocd.  Or something.

_autocd could pass an argument to _command_names, along the lines of -e.
