Before there was programmable completion, there was simply filename
completion.  Now we have smart completion, which you can turn off with
"complete -r".  But that doesn't revert to simple filename completion.
It still insists on doing "command completion".  That means that if it
thinks that a command belongs in a particular position, then it insists
on the file being executable or it won't use it for completion.

Unfortunately, bash and I don't always agree on when and what needs to
be executable.  Is there an option to turn off command completion, but
leave filename completion on?
