This reminds me of a bash feature which lets you mistype a directory
name by 1 character and still have the cd work:

$> pwd
/home/huber
$> ls -ld tmp
drwx------    3 huber    huber        4096 Jul 12 15:40 tmp
$> cd tmpf
tmp
$> pwd
/home/huber/tmp

I like this, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't want that same feature in
say...rm.  :)  Or ruby for that matter!
