FYI, apart from some general common sense packaging guidelines, I wouldn't 
invest too much time into this at the moment.  We're working on some changes 
to the bash completion dir structure and probably the mechanism with which 
individual completions are enabled upstream, it'll hopefully be included in 
not too distant future releases.
