Yes, I'm sure Master Foo would approve of auto-generating code. :)

However, you may be re-inventing the wheel to some extent. The Debian
unstable distro of svn comes with bash-completion which automatically
installs into /etc/bash-completion.d - so somebody has already done this
before. I'd thought it was already in the subversion /contrib (like the
spiffy svn.vim script is) but I see it's not. One version or the other
really ought to be, for those poor non-Debian folks. ;) (Actually, like
myself when at work...)
