Unfortunately, this now looses the useful feature that where a glob
pattern is intentionally used, all files matching the pattern are
ignored. That's often quite useful because many matches can be cut out.

Not having no_nomatch or no_bad_pattern set, I've never noticed the
problem Jesper mentions.

One solution is to add both "$words[@]" and "${(q)words[@]}" to
_comp_ignore. Or should we check for the nomatch option or use more
values to the ignore-line style? Further discussion of that should
probably move to -workers.
