Some improvements to column completion:

* Support Debian's customised BSD column (it doesn't use util-linux)

* Fix misdocumented behaviour of BSD `column -x`

* Don't do permutation on non-Debian/util-linux column

* Change -E spec to -E+

* Fix inconsistent state names (doesn't actually matter right now, but it
  might confuse someone in the future)

Sorry, after sending this i noticed two things:

* The function was missing the options -H and -o from util-linux column; i've
  added those

* It wasn't right to say that util-linux `column -x` has the opposite
  behaviour from BSD `column -x`. It's *documented* that way, but i think the
  actual behaviour is the same. The two projects might be using the word
  'fill' differently. I guess i'll leave my description change, so that it
  matches the documentation, but i've fixed my bogus comment
