Bash completion

Picks up everything in /etc/bash_completion and /etc/bash_completion.d by default.
complete -p shows all the available completions, and one can modify and reuse them.
alias ll=[TAB] will actually complete the alias, and function car[TAB] will actually complete the function!
As for how to write one’s own functions to be used for completion, it’s in this tutorial.
