We can remove that code already, because we now have code that is
superior than zsh's bash completion emulation:


This is the equivalent of what Marc is doing, except that zsh has no
problems running bash's code. Note there's a difference with zsh's
emulation bash (or rather bourne shell, or k shell), and zsh's
emulation of bash's _completion_. The former is fine, the later is

Of course, people might not be aware of this new script, and would
expect sourcing the bash one to work right away. Maybe at some point
we might throw a warning to suggest them to use my new script. But I
think we should wait a few releases just to make sure that people test
it and nothing is broken.
