Ah, thanks.  I'd already found that site but it wasn't clear to me on
first reading that the downloads were lots of completion functions, I
thought it was patches to bash to improve its compeltion code!

There's no MH/nmh support in it, and I'm a little reticent to pull all
of that into every interactive bash so I think I'll do my own `dwim'
command that can be called by `complete -C'.

Thanks for the pointer, it was useful.
