Bug Description

Binary package hint: command-not-found

comnmand-not-found does not recommand any of the bash builtin commands.

To reproduce:

/usr/lib/command-not-found -- cvd
No command 'cvd' found, did you mean:
 Command 'cdv' from package 'codeville' (universe)
 Command 'cv' from package 'radiance' (universe)
 Command 'cvt' from package 'xserver-xorg-core' (main)
 Command 'cvs' from package 'cvsnt' (universe)
 Command 'cvs' from package 'cvs' (main)
 Command 'cvsd' from package 'cvsd' (universe)
cvd: command not found

It should also recommand 'cd', the bash builtin

This is no longer in the current trunk. It was in an older rewrite attempt. Marking as confirmed again.

Very closely related, it does not suggest ksh built-ins. Oh, if I had a nickel for every time I tried to use ksh's "r" (built-in alias) in bash and got a suggestion to install the package "littler" I could pay for someone to fix this. (Note that I never seem to have this problem on computers with ksh already installed.)
