cd with two arguments

   Hi!

I used to use some Motorola SystemV machine with ksh some time ago that
accepted two arguments to cd, like

address@hidden:~/src/kdelibs/arts/mcop$ cd src build
address@hidden:~/build/kdelibs/arts/mcop$

that is, if you give two arguments, then cd
 - takes the current path
 - searches for the first argument
 - replaces it by the second argument
 - cd's into that path

I think that this behaviour sometimes has a convenient effect, and if you
don't know about it, it shouldn't hurt you. Bash (2.05) doesn't do that.
Could that be included in bash in the future? I could try to make a patch,
if you like.

   Cu... Stefan
