/usr/share/bash-completion does not get sources by default so
installing files there by default does not cause any system
slow-down. I don't think useflag is needed to install those.
The only additional bash-completion script which gets
automaticaly installed is the gentoo-specific completion.
(bash-completion only sources the stuff in /etc)
