[PATCH bash ordered autocomplete] Order the autocompletion in bash

Mmmh, I am afraid some things require bash 4.4.

Should I 'protect' somehow by adding something like this if it is
confirmed to not work on older than 4.4? This should make sure nothing
break, in worst case the 'old' autocompletion ordering should be


complete -o nosort -o filenames -F _pass pass

can be replaced with this for example:

if [ "${BASH_VERSINFO:-0}" -ge 4 ]; then
    complete -o nosort -o filenames -F _pass pass
    complete -o filenames -F _pass pass
