apropos does not output fish commands so they were not completed.

Please don't use ls this way. The "dirname" is also useless - $__fish_datadir is a directory, and is under our control.

Instead make the string replace a bit more complicated - string replace -r '.*/([^/]+)\.1$' '$1\tFish command' -- $files, where $files is set -l files $__fish_datadir/fish/man/man1/*.1.

(At least I think that's how the ".1" should be used. I think fedora gzips our man pages, so the regex potentially would have to handle "1.gz" as well)

Matching the token here should also be superfluous - we do that automatically.
