Where it's less odd is at the PS2 prompt, where often the input is a
result of cut'n'paste (I know, we have "insert-tab pending" for that,
though it isn't guaranteed to work everywhere) or simply that you want
to indent for readability.  IIRC at the time insert-tab was introduced
the completion system couldn't determine that it was at the PS2 prompt.
Maybe now that we have $PREBUFFER we could add "insert-tab secondary"
and change the default to that -- although this time we should remember
to update the documentation.


Geoff -- the zsh.org/mla interface is messed up again.  URLs like this
are not working even though the referenced article can be found via the
search page:


Also, entering an article number in the "Lookup message by ..." boxes
produces an "Object not found" error page.
