Here comes a proposal for a bash completion for cmake. Should work with almost
any cmake version because it's using cmake command to retrieve completion.

Prerequisite: You should have "bash-completion" package installed.

If you want to try  you may either:

1) add the attache "cmake" file to /etc/bach_completion.d/
2) source the file in your current (bash shell)
    $ . .cmake


$ cmake <TAB><TAB> offers first level completion

$ cmake --help-command <TAB><TAB> offers second level completion

I don't know how to handle third level for now.
