Bug#862543: /bin/systemctl: no tab completion for systemctl

Package: systemd
Version: 232-22
Severity: important
File: /bin/systemctl


unlike init systemctl has services that can be in about half dozen
places and cannot be started directly. To boot the argunet order is
inverted compared to any other service manipulation command to date.

This makes it very important to get argument completion working for
systemctl but there is none whatsoever. Not even for the arguments.
