Assuming X is a new untracked directory, do you think it is an usability
problem if an user try to do:

        git mv COPYING README <TAB>

and X does not appear in the completion list?

As far as I know, the solution is to only support custom expansion the
first parameter, unless the user will do something like:

        git mv COPYING README -- <TAB>
