Yep. I'd prefer having a file somewhere in the tree (e.g. in docs/ or a new
tools/ directory) that contains some completion functions for somw shells
(at least bash and zsh come to mind) and that the users could source in theit
startup scripts.

Having a file which sole purpose is help completion would uselessly clutter
the directory, IMRHO.

I once had make-completion working in bash: it would scan the makefile in some
manner and suggest matching options, files or rules depending on the pre-
existing command line (was that in a Mandriva?). I'll try to dig that up and
come back to you later this evening (GMT+2).
