Ah, I think I see Dasa's original point now. He was interested in fixing
"--lo<TAB>" to complete "--local". But the line he pointed to in his
original message is not the right place for that; it is the site of an
unrelated spot which should _also_ be fixed to use "--local", but for a
different reason (restricting the variables suggested for "--local --get
<TAB>" properly).

So yeah. Matthieu's patch is the right thing to do, as it covers both
(mine fixed only half of it).
