Yeah, as soon as you said the package list hadn't changed when the
_dep -> _deb typo got fixed, I realized I'd failed to copy that
assignment from the original function.

} delay of 1s is good enough for me but not good enough for some.

There are a whole slew of completion functions that take 1s or more, so
if there are people who are unhappy with this one, they're going to be
unhappy in general.  My response would be, consider how long it would
take to get the same information if you didn't have the completion.

Also the second and subsequent times you use it in the same shell, it
should be as fast as it's theoretically possible for it to be without a
C-code level optimization deeper in compsys, because the arrays will
all have been populated already.
