Judging from what is in /etc/bash_completion.d/ (I am on Debian), I
think that others are divided. Many but not all prefix "command" in
front of "grep", but nobody does the same for "egrep", "cut", "tr",
If it were up to me, I would say we pick #1, but I cc'ed the people
who have been more involved in our bash-completion code because they
are in a better position to argue between the two than I am.
