completing for a marvelous lesspipe ?

Hi fellows!

      The other day i bought one of our german speaking LinuxMags
(LinuxMagazin) with
one article about the following lesspipe ( a filter mechanism for
less, the pager):
You can download it here:

The beauty of this lesspipe is that it can show the contents of
deb,rpm zip,tar.gz and tar.bz2 files and some more.

      Now it would be still more useful if such a mighty
completion-system -as zsh has - would complete files after
the colon in e.g. compressed files 
(lesspipe can only handle one argument so the author
had to put the other arguments after a seperator , a colon
here) and do some smart completing with other cases.

Are there even smarter lesspipes?

Any ideas about a clever completion for less with that
lesspipe.sh as filter ?
