Ah, this means the argument parsing function being used by pcomplete
for shell-mode is not good enough.  Since that is entirely
customizable, it could be fixed without touching pcomplete.

I guess it depends on whether RMS wants to try to make pcomplete work
or not.  If so, then I should probably use the old completion logic's
argument parsing function for use with pcomplete.
