When should config files be noreplace and when should they not?  We
can't tell when we build this version of quilt whether a later version
will make an incompatible change to the quiltrc config....

Since this package doesn't depend on bash-completion, it has to own the
bash_completion.d directory unless...

...you create a different mechanism to deal with it.  I was unaware of
the trigger stuff you refer to but it looks almost right::

  %triggerin -- bash-completion
  ln -sf %{_datadir}/%{name}/%{name}-bashrc \

  %triggerun -- bash-completion
  [ $2 -gt 0 ] || rm -f %{_sysconfdir}/bash_completion.d/%{name}

I don't use triggers much but I think this doesn't handle the case where
bash_completion is installed and quilt/mpc gets uninstalled.  So it also
  [ $1 = 0 ] && rm -f %{_sysconfdir}/bash_completion.d/%{name}

For quilt, you'd also want this in %install::
  mv ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/bash_completion.d/%{name} \
  rm -rf ${RPM_BUILD_ROOT}/bash_completion.d

Not without having errors at runtime.... A runtime check could be
patched in and sent upstream, though.

Good points.
