How to add new command line option to genfstab?

I would like to test a locally modified version of genfstab from arch-install-scripts.git.

EDIT: this is what I ended up doing.

sudo pacman -Qi asciidoc #for a2x dependency
git clone https://git.archlinux.org/arch-install-scripts.git
cd arch-install-scripts/

edit genfstab.in to make my changes.
also edit completion/genfstab.bash

git diff genfstab.in
git diff completion/genfstab.bash
make

Now I have a modified genfstab to test.

EDIT 2: Are these commands required for my local testing?

# source genfstab.bash
# complete -F _genfstab genfstab

I don't have any experience working with bash completions (except as a user), but the changes I need look pretty simple...

diff --git a/completion/genfstab.bash b/completion/genfstab.bash

This shows my idea for the filter options. I'm sure it has flaws, but it does allow me to do stuff like this "./genfstab -e "nfs4" /path" which is what I was trying to achieve.
