Re: [PATCHv3] Refactor baud rate completion

Hi Oliver,

thanks for taking your time to look over the code. I'll address these as
soon as I can, though on weekdays my spare time is severely limited at
the moment.

Sure that's simple enough.

Huh. I wasn't aware of this one at all. But it's easy enough to fix.

I'll take a look at _pdf and the possibility to use _description. I kind
of expected there to be a way to propagate stuff to compadd, but was too
lazy to find out. :)

Sounds reasonable. I'll take a look at this as well.
