  Loading /etc/bash_completion is slow

Status in bash completion:
Status in “bash-completion” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “bash-completion” package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Loading /etc/bash_completion takes over 0.5s (usually over 0.6s).
  While this doesn't seem like much, maybe, it's very annoying for a
  file that must be sourced in .bashrc.  If it could go in
  .bash_profile, that would be fine, but it seems bash is not designed
  to work that way for completion rules.

  I am on a 1.1Ghz Pentium M, so not ancient h/w.  The 0.6s delay on
  opening a new terminal is very annoying.
