http://code.google.com/p/conque/ comes closest: it let's you run
arbitrary shell application (also bash with its completion) inside Vim.
However you can only type in "insert mode" thus all vim key bindings and
advantages are gone.

- sorry. Bash completions don't make sense in internet explorer. I don't
have an small idea what you're talking about. You really should
provide some examlpes. An example could look like this:
In bash I can do:
ls -<tab> and I'll get a list of options:
-a = show hidden files
-l = show detalis
If you start providing some more concrete examples there might be a
chance me getting an idea about what you're talking about.
If you need help finding the files describing bash completion ping back
again and I'll point you to the sources.
