We should have a tool to test the auto-completion scripts while they are under development. This ensures backward compatibility. We should not break previous behavior and some rare cases that might come up. Obviously, developers might forget to test a special case, or they might not have the time to test all the test cases right after each minute change in code.

I have found a post by brbsix that tackles the very same issue. This looks like a neat approach to write bash auto-completion tests.
