Merged, thanks.  Some comments:

If any of the affected tools use --foo=bar style arguments, consider
using  the newly added -s argument to _init_completion or _split_longopt
where appropriate.  At least the slackpkg completion seems to be a
candidate for this.

Some cases for the test suite would be nice.  (Very) basic sanity check
ones can be generated with "./generate foo" in the test dir.

I pushed a change that added lost/missing local variables settings block
at end of each affected file, please keep it around.

Consider using _parse_help instead of hardcoded option lists, it has
been improved quite a bit recently.  I'll push a _parse_usage function
today that does similar things as _parse_help for tools whose usage/help
message doesn't look like the GNU one, but rather the BSD (?) one
(options in brackets, mostly short ones).
