The one in lrzip seems to have some drawbacks over the one in
bash-completion and generally doesn't match bash-completion's style, so
I did not adopt it wholesale.  But -? and -p handling are now in
bash-completion git, the latter in somewhat more portable fashion than
in the one included with lrzip.

By the way this highlights the biggest benefit of having completions
upstream: they have a better chance of being up to date / complete with
the corresponding software than when they're in bash-completion.  (The
Fedora 14 version of lrzip I initially wrote the lrzip completion for
did not have the two above mentioned options.)
