I don't think Alex is asking about tab completion of nomtuch-fcc-dirs
itself -- he's talking about tab completion during message composition
of the Fcc: header line.

So that would be the equivalent of tab-completing "kth/Sent" or
"posteo/Sent" in your examples above, and including in that tab
completion values from the set of known tags if the user is tabbing
after having entered a "+" or "-" symbol.

Alex, please correct me if i've confused anything about your feature
