Side lining a bit. Do you think hello package should be accompanied
with bash completion example? I cannot see any harm with that,
although I cannot remember any GNU package that would have completions
with them. To be safe side if the completions are added the comments
should tell scripts to be more an example than expectation.

Assuming the add scenario, completion should display long-only
options. IMO from users point of view  seing '-t' or '-g' is not
helpful when compared to '--traditional' and '--greeting=TEXT'.
