since there doesn't seem to be an agreement that the approach to achieve tcsh
git-completion would be useful for zsh (the other possible shell that could use
it is ksh, but I haven't looked into that), maybe the simplest thing
is to keep the
tcsh solution contained in a tcsh-only script.  This is the latest solution as
proposed here:

[1] http://www.mail-archive.com/git@vger.kernel.org/msg12192.html

For reference, the more general solution was proposed here:
[2] http://www.mail-archive.com/git@vger.kernel.org/msg12122.html

If there is interest in merging [1], please let me know and I'll post another
version which adds a check to make sure that the user properly copied
git-completion.bash to be used by the new git-completion.tcsh.

Thanks for your input.
