So, what's the right strategy for these?  I added the file in Feb 2004
on request from Jon Middleton, per Debian bug #227456.  I haven't given
it a single thought since then...

Does it make sense for me to continue to include the bash completion
file in the mtx package, or should I instead stop including it and add a
suggests on bash-completion to the package dependencies?
