[Bash-completion-devel] New directory layout

Perhaps a `COMP_PATH' variable is useful as I've done within the
bash-completion-lib fork:

    String variable containing directories to search for completions, separated
by a colon (:). By default `COMP_PATH' contains these directories:

        * $HOME/.bash_completion_lib.d/completions
        * $COMP_DIR/completions 

Having a `COMP_PATH' environment variable would allow for a per-distribution
setting of COMP_PATH.
