It would be great if it were possible to write test cases for the completion file. A very quick search on the net leads to a Python solution: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/9137245/unit-test-for-bash-completion-script

The idea is to set COMP_WORDS manually, call _quilt_completion() manually, and then check the content of COMPREPLY.

I'm not sure however that this should be included in the same test runner than the other tests.
