Supersedes #1065.
Fixes #1000

This PR does two things:

  1. adds completion of the help command so that
<program> [tab][tab]

will include help in the completion choices. This is done by the first commit provided by @voithos taken from #1065.

  1. adds completion for the help command using ValidArgsFunction so that
<program> help [tab][tab]

will show all sub-commands (including help since <program> help help is a valid command), and

<program> help <subCmd1> [tab][tab]

will show all sub-commands of <subCmd1>. And so forth down the command tree.

voithos and others added 2 commits Jun 9, 2020
1- Show 'help' as a possible completion
2- Provide completions for the help command itself
