Re: completion within word

Isn't the colon-variable completion problem simply solved by
redefining what a "word" is with something like select-word-style? The
sledge hammer approach is to define words just as bash does with the
following. There are more subtle ways to just exclude : from the list
of word characters; such methods are adequately documented in the
manual. Of course, this approach has other (IMO consistent therefore
desirable) effects besides completion, such as ^W behavior.

autoload -U select-word-style
select-word-style bash

$ BLA=/foo:/us<TAB>
$ BLA=/foo:/usr/
