Hum, I can't say I understood what you meant to say here. What I can
tell you is that so far, I'm only using _arguments.

It did, thanks :-)

I have another problem, everytime I complete on foo.py, everything seems
to go fine but _optparse is still the widget used to complete the
script, e.g. the python script is called everytime I need to complete.

So I guess I'm not actually rebinding... The function I'm using is:

Any hints on how to get this right?


    eval "`$bar --optcomp-on-the-fly`"

    if [[ -z $functions[_$bar] ]]; then
    _message "$bar --optcomp-on-the-fly didn't define _$bar"
    return 1

    compdef _$bar $bar
    _$bar "$@"

BTW, how can I see which widget is being used to complete a command?
