I solved this in a non-zsh fashion by writing a program called classfind that
parsed my classpath and built a cache of classes vs. package/directory.
So I can identify which jar I pick up a particular class from.
I then built a zsh completion around it, such that this program was invoked for
'java com.oopsconsultancy.<TAB>'. So it doesn't complete on directories, but
from your classpath.
More details if you're interested.
