Subject: Re: bash completion

I noticed some problems with completion for unique.

./unique <part[TAB] will refuse completion of file name.


./unique <file outf[TAB] refuses to complete but I suppose that is 
intended since unique will refuse to overwrite anyway. The problem with 
this is I'll very often want to tab-complete it anyway and then edit, like:

./unique <file outf[TAB]

-> complete to an existing:

./unique <file outfile

-> then edit the completed name

./unique <file outfile_uniq

Maybe that's just me.
