I think this sort of thing is really better done with shell script
wrappers, configuring your shell to do tab-completion of folders, etc.
(For example, I have some shell aliases that allow me to omit the '+'
completely because they prepend it automatically to arguments which
are valid folder names; this makes it easier to use nmh with speech
recognition software.)
