Granted, but you still have to remember what you're tab-completing,
and tab completion is a bit of a moving target as you add other
packages which install things with somewhat similar names in your
path. If that were really the end-all be-all solution, we'd just get
rid of any sort of execution search path at all and tab-complete
everything to separately installed directory heirarchies so as to
avoid collisions.
