[lug] CDPATH?

Another helpful tweak for cd is "shopt -s globstar"

shopt -s globstar
mkdir -p a/b/c/d/e
cd **/e

It's no DWIM, but sometimes it's a good shortcut. I'm lazy and a bad
typist, so my .bashrc includes this:

shopt -s cdspell dirspell globstar

Also this:

alias mroe=more  # for Evi

Perhaps, however, tonight's emacs talk will include ways to use DWIM
commands to turn emacs into the shell-of-your-dreams. :-)
