This is costly, but on the other hand the user requests it...

Another issue is what happens if a login/password is asked for? That could
stuck the completion function. Possibly the '--non-interactive' option
might be useful.

Also, I do not like at all the idea of relying on 'sed': the function is
pure bash at the time, and adding an external dependency does not seem

I'll look into it.
