Actually, I don't really see why we need to worry about matching
directory names as an extension (it may easily lead to bogus results
as the example with xxx-CVS/ shows).

Couldn't we simply say that if a directory name (an element ending in
a /) is present in completion-ignored-extensions, it must match the
directory name exactly?
