I know this thread has been going on for some time, but I thought this
might be useful: "Command-line auto completion for Hadoop DFS
commands" http://blog.rapleaf.com/dev/?p=304

It's a programatic way to generate auto-completion using bash. I
imagine it would be possible to rework it to parse a .bash_history
file just as well.
