Right, but I'm talking about python packaging.  Which is certainly closely
related to system/distribution packaging, but lacks a lot of the machinery
to get it right.

What I'm trying to do is:
1) make it simple for the 'developer' comsumers of the python package to use
   bash completions (witghout needing the system packages)
2) Help the system/distribution packagers or at the very least not make thier
   life more difficult.
Yours Tony.
