Yes, something like this would be very useful for the programable
completion.

But in the meantime can you describe what exactly these options do?

My understanding is this:
nospace: No not append a space after a completion even if it's the only
one.
filenames: Quote shell meta-characters and append a / if the sole
completion is a directory
dirnames: Has no effect if the compspec generates no matches?

So probably at least filenames could be emulated by the completion
function, right?

 Mika
