doesnt do so here..
it does completion on local file names though, so if you do:
$ whatever whatever:/<PATH><tab>
it will autocomplete based on the local filesystem, so if /<PATH> and
whatever:/<PATH> match you might get the sense that bash was
auto-logging into to remote machine and getting dir listing, but it
if yours is, wow.
