Of course, zsh has 2.9 MB of completion code in it; I especially like
the tab completion in things like the apt command above, and completion
of filenames in various cvs commands (cvs add <tab>). Perhaps bash will
catch up eventually.

When I'm feeling bored, I will sometimes play the "what _can't_ zsh
complete?" game. Let's see.. dict. Nope, supported.
