I think there needs to be a bit more specification about how this would work.
Where would this fit in the overall design of contexts? E.g. does it
happen in "-default-" context (which isn't always applied) and if so
do alaises complete instead of files, as well as files, or only when
there are no files (that is, _files returns nonzero)?
Do the aliases expand or is just their name completed? What happens
if you complete to the right of a global alias that (if expanded)
changes the syntax of the command line?
There are probably several other cases to consider, depending on the
answers to those.
