And I find them very useful, except where they have bugs (e.g. "sudo
-e", which should work like 'sudoedit'). IMHO tab-completion should
complete to what's supposed to be there in most cases, maybe even giving
hints if there is a choice between several types of "data" (e.g. options
vs. filenames; where the former start with "-" or "--").
OTOH, I think applications should ideally provide their own
tab-completion, to make sure the same commandline-parser is used for
both completion and interpretation.
