Also, I'd definitely want "chdir" rather than "cd". Readability is good.

In this case, why not changedir? (changedirectory is a bit too much...)
When I see chdir, I tend to read "check dir"... Yes, that would be chkdir, but my point is that abbreviations, except the most commons like dir or tmp, are subject to interpretation depending on readers (and their culture: I can see chdir as "cherche dir", too).
