Now I understand what you mean (I had misread "run-help" for
"helpfiles", since you were talking about the latter just before).

Yes, indeed, I thought about doing this when writing the patch,
and IMHO the same thing should also happen to the _run-help
command completion.

However, I did not find out how _run-help.in could be
prevented from being installed: As far as I understood, just
anything in the Completion hierarchy gets installed, and
nothing else seems to use such a mechanism. So I thought
that it is some sort of philosophy that these files should
be identical on every system.
