Since apparently this version has not yet been pushed to git, I just
continued working on it.

-cosmetic cleanups
-minor bug fixes
-completion support for -opt:val

If $COMP_WORDBREAKS does not contain a colon,
$ ./john -fo:a[tab]
$ ./john -fo=a

$ ./john -fo:a[tab]
$ ./john -fo:afs

All other options should work as well, at least those options with
useful completions, not just usage hints, e.g., there's no completion
for --users:

Please test to check if I missed something.
Otherwise, enjoy the new functionality.
