PATCH: completing remote files for scp

As far as I could tell, completion of files for scp only worked with
full filenames starting from root. More often than not, I want to
copy files from my home on the remote system so I use no initial
slash. Trying to do this, I first get `./' inserted and then can't
complete in subdirectories.

I think this patch is right now. I find it all a bit easier by
using compadd -P/-S. I've also changed the consecutive calls to
_wanted with the same tag which isn't particularly efficient.
Some of this can probably be transferred over to _rsync.
