I had the some thought.  But bash-completion 1.2 was release 4 months 
ago and there will likely be a few more months before the next pacman 
release.  So that is a fair window for updating.  And to run into this 
people need to be updating their package manager which is a bigger 
upgrade than bash-completion.

And even Cygwin has 1.2: http://cygwin.com/packages/bash-completion/
