tab completion sort by modification time

I would like to request a new feature in bash.

When doing a tab completion inside a directory, I would like the files
to be listed in the order of modification time (similar to ls -rt).
Say  a directory contains a lot of files and say I am only interested
in the files that were recently edited/created. Currently there is no
easier way to obtain this using tab completion.

Would it be possible to add this feature to bash? If this is something
already available, please let me know how to do it. I am using Debian
Jessie,

address@hidden:~$ bash --version
GNU bash, version 4.3.30(1)-release (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu)

and the installed bash package is

address@hidden:~$ dpkg -l bash | grep ^ii
ii  bash           4.3-11       amd64        GNU Bourne Again SHell

thanks
raju
