I think maybe a better solution is for completion in shell commands 
*not* to use this list.  It was designed to filter out files that you 
wouldn't want to read with find-file.  But when you're specifying 
filename arguments to shell commands, the set of useful files is 
dependent on the command you're applying to them.  If it's a basic 
command like mv or rm, there's no reason to filter out anything.
