I'm wondering if it is worthwhile to add such a feature. I have run
into the problem that it is very slow to command complete an
incomplete command especially when other programs are accessing the
disk (note that I frequently open new terminals, so the caching done
within a bash process does not help me much).

If I can configure how to complete on non-empty command names, I could
just check a file with all the commands in PATH are stored. By
checking just a single file, presumable the search can be much faster
than searching many directories.
