I see.

I just noticed your commit to reinstate bash completions. Thanks!

I've created a merge request because of some issues I had with 
installing them on my own machine, namely completions not being 
automatically loaded, and--if they *are*--completions for `sr` don't get 
loaded until after `surfraw` has its completions loaded.
