Why does 'ignore-line yes' ignore the _current_ word too? If this is somehow useful in some cases, could we get another option ignoring all words except the current one? I'm almost burned myself when using zstyle ':completion:*:(mv|rm|kill|diff):*' ignore-line yes and doing rm someprefix<tab> in a directory with files 'someprefix' and 'someprefix_important'. In this case someprefix will expand to someprefix_important (minimal rc file inclued)
ignore-line This is tested for each tag valid for the current completion. If it is set to true, none of the words that are already on the line will be considered as possible completions. If it is set to current, the word the cursor is on will not be considered as a possible completion. The value current-shown is similar but only applies if the list of completions is currently shown on the screen. Finally, if the style is set to other, no word apart from the current one will be considered as a possible completion. The values current and current-shown are a bit like the opposite of the accept-exact style: only strings with missing characters will be completed. Note that you almost certainly dont want to set this to true or other for a general context such as :completion:*. This is because it would disallow completion of, for example, options multiple times even if the command in question accepts the option more than once.
