Is this an objection or just entertaining pedantry about the limitations
of my general comment as applied to this case? Attributing credit can be
important, I'm just not especially fond of it in this form.

The --follow option ought to track beyond the reorganisation but as that
was done in CVS it has likely been too obscured. The commit message does
point to Completion/User/_perl and you can do
  git log -- Completion/User/_perl
The first version there is still the initial CVS import. So you'd have to
look at the content to see the comment. Or refer the mailing list
archives - which is the only option for nearly all other functions that
predate our use of CVS. (and rather more than we have for everything
predating the list archives)
