Look for "tramp-completion-*". It's not only host names, but also
methods and user names which need to be expanded. And what/how to
expand depends on the method. And there are syntax ambiguities
("/ssh:" can be a method or a host name). And in the ftp case it must
be given to ange-ftp, IIRC.

It was a nightmare to implement, at least for me. If you find
something to simplify, I'ld really appreciate it.

Best regards, Michael.
