I always check out my trees with "bk -r co -q" precisely because of
command-line completion. Anything that saves my poor hands from further
pain is a good thing... :) And similar to your example, I switched from
my preferred method of search, grep -r, to /usr/bin/find, just so I
would (and had to) add "grep -v SCCS" in the middle of the xargs pipe.
