Ok, having issues with bash completion. I want it to complete on arguments for a given command. It doesn't do that.

Example:

I type sudo pacman --sy<TAB> and I want it to complete to --sync

I know this is the default behavior in Ubuntu (which is one thing I actually like having) but I'm on Arch and only have tab completion to a certain extent (completing commands, showing what package contains a command if I try to run something that isn't installed, etc)
