I fixed the username!
Authored by: serversurfer on Nov 29, '01 05:51:34PM
A little playing around with Cadre's complete yielded:
complete {scp,rcp} 'C@[./]*@f@' 'c/*@/`list_all_hostnames`/:' 'n/*/`list_all_hostnames`/:'

This will still allow you to tab-complete hostnames after specifying a username.
scp root@ot[TAB]

becomes
scp root@otherhost:

I wanted this because sometimes I do work on other boxen as root, but I agree with Cadre's assertion that you should specify your normal username for the other box in ~/.ssh/config.
