Re: completing a single clearcase command

The most thorough examples of completion for this sort of command are
Completion/Unix/Command/_cvs and Completion/Debian/Command/_apt.  The
former uses _arguments to parse the command line, and the latter uses
_regex_arguments which allows more detailed pattern-matching but has a
somewhat more tangled syntax.

Which one is better depends on how complex the stuff between "ct" and
the operation name may be.  If there are never any arguments to "ct"
before the operation name, look at Completion/Debian/Command/_bts.

A less intense _regex_arguments example is Completion/X/Command/_xset.
