comment How does searching a file (locate) or autocompletion work?
@ChrisDown: I'm aware of this. But bash-completion is offered in most distros, sometimes installed by default. I named the package specifically for those who don't have it and want to install it.

@Aki: The majority of customized autocompletion in bash is implemented by scripts in /etc/bash_completion.d/. You're right, they need not be shell scripts, but most of the time they are. (zsh keeps its completion scripts in /usr/share/zsh/site-functions/)
