This is easy to fix.

Just add

               if [[ "_${compreplya}_" == "__" ]] ; then
                        compreplya=`compgen -W "${options}" -- ${cur}`


                compreplya=`compgen -W "${options}" -- ${cur}

I hope it is OK to replace -wo with --wordlist=, or should I expand this
to -wordlist=?
(In this case expanding - will provide a list where all options appear
twice, once starting with --, once just starting with -.)

Expanding -wo=passwo or -word:passwo to --wordlist=password.lst will be
a little more effort.
