As I said, I don't think this is needed. It can be done in a single
stand-alone script without modifications to git-completion.bash.

This works:

set called = ($_)
set script = "${called[2]}.tmp"

cat <<\EOF > $script
source "$HOME/.git-completion.sh"

# Set COMP_WORDS in a way that can be handled by the bash script.

# Set COMP_CWORD to the cursor location as bash would.
if [ -n "${2-}" ]; then
        # Assume the cursor is at the end of parameter #1.
        # We must check for a space as the last character which will
        # tell us that the previous word is complete and the cursor
        # is on the next word.
        if [ "${1: -1}" == " " ]; then
                # The last character is a space, so our location is at the end
                # of the command-line array
                # The last character is not a space, so our location is on the
                # last word of the command-line array, so we must decrement the
                # count by 1

# Call _git() or _gitk() of the bash script, based on the first
# element of the command-line

echo "${COMPREPLY[*]}"

complete git  'p/*/`bash ${script} "${COMMAND_LINE}" | sort | uniq`/'
complete gitk 'p/*/`bash ${script} "${COMMAND_LINE}" | sort | uniq`/'
