I'm aware, and like the bash completion scripts this is not a complete
solution as the tools needed to properly inspect pacman's configuration
aren't readily available yet.
(Excluding pacutils, which itself is not completely sufficient as it
doesn't understand what a "repository" is beyond it being a section.)
Ultimately both completion scripts will need a bit of reworking
eventually. This patch is simply to tide it over until then.
