Provide symlink to the latest version of the installed software in the Cellar #13286

I source the git-completion.bash file in my .bashrc, and it's quite a few versions behind. It would be very nice if there was a symlink called current to the latest installed version in /usr/local/Cellar/<packagename>/ so that we would not have to routinely update paths when the file remains in the same location from package to package, and instead it would just update in newer terminals.
