I do have something like that in the works (hoogli), but its not ready
for the world quite yet.

Yes, I know command line completion works - but only for files, not
for anything else, and there is no way to make it work for other
things. However, I know that zsh can do funky things like
autocompleting ssh paths etc - and I think I remember seeing that
there was some way a program could tell zsh what it could autocomplete
to - but that is a hazy memory from a while ago.
