You have two scripts with the same name, one for v1.0, one for v0.1.
Installing both means renaming them, and I assumed that would break
things. As well, its not clear if these completion scripts will work
when I invoke gst-inspect-1.0 rather than just gst-inspect, although I
admit I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.
