This is actually the first time I've included the completion, which is why the 
conflict only showed up now. I didn't write it and wasn't really planning on 
maintaining one. It just happened that someone contributed one so I included 
it. I'd much rather it stayed part of the bash completion package, but could 
you possibly use this new one instead since it appears more complete?
