She might have had the same problem if she named it _git_complete.
That might be unlinkely, but I also find it unlikely that anybody
would have a git_complete function. In fact, I find it unlikely that
people would write shell functions like that; it's much easier to
write scripts and put them in $PATH.

Even more, I just added a foobar() function in my profile, and I also
added a foobar() function in /etc/bash_completion.d/git. I don't see
my function replaced in any way, even after typing and completing
'git' commands. I don't know how that's possible, but that's why I
don't like to take these types of claims as face value.
