Well, for a limited set of cases.  :)

$ /bin/ln<TAB>

changes output from 'ln.exe   lndir.exe' to 'ln   lndir', but

$ ls /bin/ln<TAB>

still shows .exe.  Patches would be welcome for anyone that can figure
out how to make bash-completion also strip .exe from file name
completions when the name being completed is not the first word on the
command line.
