Could you also complete from 'Host' entries in ~/.ssh/config? I have
lots of shortcut hosts in there like so:

| Host andromeda
| HostName andromeda.dapyr.net
| Host rakim
| HostName cfhp.org

I'd love to be able to tab-complete from those. I do this in tcsh like

| set ssh_hosts = `grep '^Host[ ][^*]' ~/.ssh/config | cut -c 6-`
| complete ssh 'p/1/$ssh_hosts/'
| foreach host ($ssh_hosts) # $
|     alias $host "ssh -t $host screen -DR"
| end
