  Bash completion for wxmaxima

Status in bash-completion package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: bash-completion

  wxmaxima (which is a great graphical frontend for the even greater
  mathematical package maxima) accepts only wxmaxima- and maxima-Files
  as command line parameters and doesn't support any command line
  options save from that.

  The advantage of writing an autocompletion rule that offers files as
  command line parameters for wxmaxima that this program can actually
  open would be that this rule excludes files generated by the html- and
  LaTeX-export functionality - that typically differ from the project's
  name only by their extension and by the fact that they - although they
  contain the complete text of the project - no longer can be opened by
  wxmaxima itself.

  Will add a suitable rule for wxmaxima to this bug report. The only
  thing that might be left to do - partially since I didn't know how to
  do this and partially since I was not sure if excluding directories
  from autocompletion might prove to be a good idea in the first place -
  is to exclude directories ending in _img: They are generated during
  html export and only contain bitmap images of the formulae.
