Glad it's not totally shrouded in obscurity...

Would generally recommend the combination of complete-word as binding
for tab + use of the expand completer (which I fixed somewhere else in
this thread but am still to commit) as this is much more configurable.

To turn it on you'd do something like

zstyle ':completion:*' completer _expand _complete _ignored
bindkey '^i' complete-word

but there are many more exotic possibilities.

I'll have a look at expand-or-complete word, too.

(Ideally, in fact, whether or not we expand ~[whatever] needs
configuring --- because this is dynamic completion you might decide to
expand it to freeze the path for future use.  I'll look at that if I get
the chance.  This is the sort of reason for using the expand completer
I'm talking about.)
