    This shrinks the top-level directory a bit, and makes it much more
    pleasant to use auto-completion on the thing. Instead of
    
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em buil<tab>
    	Display all 180 possibilities? (y or n)
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-sh
    	builtin-shortlog.c     builtin-show-branch.c  builtin-show-ref.c
    	builtin-shortlog.o     builtin-show-branch.o  builtin-show-ref.o
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-shor<tab>
    	builtin-shortlog.c  builtin-shortlog.o
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin-shortlog.c
    
    you get
    
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em buil<tab>		[type]
    	builtin/   builtin.h
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin		[auto-completes to]
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/sh<tab>	[type]
    	shortlog.c     shortlog.o     show-branch.c  show-branch.o  show-ref.c     show-ref.o
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/sho		[auto-completes to]
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/shor<tab>	[type]
    	shortlog.c  shortlog.o
    	[torvalds@nehalem git]$ em builtin/shortlog.c
    
    which doesn't seem all that different, but not having that annoying
    break in "Display all 180 possibilities?" is quite a relief.
    
    NOTE! If you do this in a clean tree (no object files etc), or using an
    editor that has auto-completion rules that ignores '*.o' files, you
    won't see that annoying 'Display all 180 possibilities?' message - it
    will just show the choices instead.  I think bash has some cut-off
    around 100 choices or something.
    
    So the reason I see this is that I'm using an odd editory, and thus
    don't have the rules to cut down on auto-completion.  But you can
    simulate that by using 'ls' instead, or something similar.
