'optcomplete' provides programmable shell completion support for Python scripts that use the 'optparse' module. It implements the Bash completion protocol, and a simple common shell function invokes the script to provide the completion suggestions. Since an optparse parser already has most of the useful information required to provide completions, only two lines of code are needed to provide basic support for completions to an existing script. It also lets the developer to provide per-option completion, etc.
