1. It may help if we could overload CDPATH (either as it is, or via a shopt for backward compatibility reasons) so that Filename Completion consults CDPATH also.

This is a perfect opportunity to use programmable completion.  Writing a
shell function that uses CDPATH (or any other variable you choose,
including LSPATH) should be fairly simple, and you can use it as the
completion function for any command you like.
