=== Rationale ===
Bash-Completion is currently installed into different paths for each single GNU/Linux distribution. This way, it's not easy for maintainers to "interface" with other distributions' people, so a proposal has been raised to improve the directory layout of Bash-Completion scripts.

 * Debian / Ubuntu
