Cool. shells/bash-completion *does* work with pkg.
It would be cool if shells/bash-completion was automatically installed
when the bash port is installed, so that the average user does not have
to do any other setup, and things *just work* out of the box.

It would also give the pkg developers incentive to keep the bash completion
updated and in sync as new pkg sub commands and command flags are

I just tried zsh, and it looks like the pkg completions work by default
with zsh.  Very nice!
