Hi Norm,

I did work out the tcsh(1) spell for that in another millenium, these
days I use bash as it's what to hand.  I've had a go at what you
requested and it seems to work;  I don't use it myself and haven't tried
to define a bash completion before so be warned.

        local w=${COMP_WORDS[COMP_CWORD]} &&
        [[ $w == +* ]] && w=${w#+} &&
            folders -fast |
            awk -v "w=$w" -v "l=${#w}" 'substr($0, 1, l) == w'
    complete -P + -F comp_nmh_folder -D

It assumes if you are completing a word starting with a plus that it's a
folder.  It does this for all commands, -D for default, not a hard-coded
list of scan, refile, ...  That way it works with your ~/bin.  Tap Tab
multiple times for a list of possible completions.

Cheers, Ralph.
