Well, that's a good point, but when I was adding this Requires field I
was thinking of a situation where we would end up having
/etc/bash_completion.d/subversion file but /etc/bash_completion.d
directory not belonging to any of the packages. If such situation is
acceptable, I see no reasons to keep this Reqires. As I wrote in
commitlog, I was not sure of this being correct.
