Bash completion files are imho either always or never config files. So
it is either an error that needs to be fixed or not worth a warning.

And I doubt that python scripts in below
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages usually need to be executable. Since
yum works without any problems, these tons of errors are useless, too.
And they make it only harder to find real errors. I did not think more
about the other quoted rpmlint messages.
