I'm currently working on the bash-completion package for Debian/Ubuntu.

I'd like to know if it is possible to change the options of the
programable completion within the completion function.

Not currently.  I'm thinking about a new builtin that would accept the
same set of -o options as complete/compgen (and probably +o to turn
them off, as with the `set' builtin).  There's no reason to invent a
new set of special shell varaiables.
