Yes, that's the way Bazaar does it (bzr shell-complete), but for now
this does the trick.

Also, I've been carrying around the patches from Stephen Boyd that add
--dump-raw-long-options. I think it would be better if somehow 'git
help' learned how to throw this output for both commands and
arguments, and then use the first part for bash, or specify bash
format somehow. Of course, we would need to add support for
descriptions in the option parser.

It's the big world-domination plan for completions, but I haven't had
time to work on that.
