Instant cd

I want to write a program which tries to guess what you would type next, like google instant. It checks the command, tries to see what it's parameteres are, and filename.
I know this works when you press tab, but it would be faster if it showed the "suggestions" in 10 lines or so, all the time. I don't know if this has been done before, I didn't find anything on the Internet. I have some basic bash knowledge, as well as python and c++. If you could point to a starting point, that would be greately appreciated.
Many thanks!

Look at dmenu's source for a reference.
