I'm not quite that lazy. Specifying /usr/include/*,
/dev/rst* wouldn't be too much of a trial.

Then just specify the ones you use most. I wasn't thinking of tryingto parse the -help
output of a command or the man page description,
It just seemed an easier way to describe simple completion behaviour.
