Good call on using --non-interactive. I attached a second version of
the patch which:
* uses --non-interactive
* conforms to the (general) usage of tabs for white space in the file
* adds "-o nospace" to the invocation of bash "complete"

That last might well be disputed, but in my usage, it's a greater evil
to have to backspace the extra space at each level in a url completion
than to add the space after each argument.
