Right. This started off via a suggestion by Deepayan and a quick install via
a local-to-Debian-package-sources file, and has never moved away from that.

I am CCing Deepayan now; it may indeed be useful to commit this in the R svn
and to add it to the tarball as the feature is very, very useful if you
deplay bash completion.
