Sadly not. One of my start-up files contains

  typeset -U path PATH

and this gives the error "path: attempt to assign array value to
non-array". So it isn't completely in zsh mode. Playing further I
provoked a segmentation fault! This dies:

   ARGV0=sh zsh -c 'typeset -U path PATH'

(zsh version 5.2.6 on Fedora).
