May be seen as a thread hijack but I think this is related:
The attached completion, is the only way I found to have a consistent
completion on URL.

But it has its drawback: $COMP_WORDBREAKS is globally modified:
$ zz http://<tab>
http://a  http://b
"'><=;|&(   ### ':' has disappeared

Sad that bash needs $COMP_WORDBREAKS *after* the function has returned
(and filled $COMPREPLY) rather than *into* the compgen call.

Is there workaround, solutions and/or bash-bugs/bash-comp/wiki
references around ?
