Thanks for the patch! We already have an earlier proposal, though:

As I explained in the bug, I don't like using bash-completion.pc,
because it will give a directory that will make us overwrite distro
files, which is something that I think we should never do by default. It
should be a user choice to overwrite distro files, so it should be
possible for the user to configure the bash completion directory. Even
better would be if Bash supported loading completions under /usr/local
even when Bash itself is installed to some other prefix. For comparison,
Zsh uses /usr/local in its default completion search paths.
