I have a function 'cs' that roughly looks like 'cd /some/prefix/$*', that I would like to have completion for. Any tips? (For some reason, non-trivial completions never seem to want to work for me :-(.)

Why not write a shell function that prefixes the right directory to
the word to be completed, runs compgen, and strips the prefix from the
generated list of completions?
