It should be relatively straightforward.  It's just that now instead of being 
called by name, the matchers list actually contains the raw python methods. 
You probably want to try something along the follwing lines (untested, typed 
up in my mail client):

import new

ipshell.IP.Completer.proxy_matches = new.instancemethod(proxy_matches,

ipshell.IP.Completer.matchers.insert(0, ipshell.IP.Completer.proxy_matches)

Or some minor variation thereof.  Please let me know if it works, and the 
actual syntax that makes it work.  This is something which I can then expose 
with a public function that wraps some of this boilerplate.
