[Bash-completion-devel] Bug#535585: ssh: only sees foo in 'Host foo bar baz' in .ssh/config

It seems that "ssh ba[TAB]" will try to complete "ba" as a hostname,
using ~/.ssh/config as one source of names. The file ~/.ssh/config is
described by the ssh_config(5) manpage, and in addition to the simple
Host pattern, e.g.
you can have multiple patterns
Host foo.example.net bar.example.net
AFAICT bash-completion only "sees" the first one. I'd like it to
complete all of them. Bonus points will be awarded if you can work
out an intelligent way to handle globbing patterns, e.g.
Host *.example.net *.example.com
I had a look at /etc/bash_completion.d/ssh, but it was written in such
an abstract way that I think I'd have to understand large parts of the
main /etc/bash_completion script in order to solve this myself.
