,----[ C-h v abbreviated-home-dir RET ]
| abbreviated-home-dir's value is
| "^/home/kevinr\\(/\\|$\\)"
| Documentation:
| The user's homedir abbreviated according to `directory-abbrev-alist'.
| Defined in `files'.

So when I'm visiting a file under /home/kevinr, C-x C-f displays this in
the minibuffer:

Find file: ~/foo/bar/etc/

Is that what you want?
