I hadn't realised the significance of the part about line and options in
the documentation. It should possibly be made very clear in the
_arguments documentation that you need to declare line and opt_args

I did mean as I said. It still doesn't work (3.1.6-pws-6 on AIX or 3.1.6
on Linux). I tried it also with zsh -f;autoload -U compinit;compinit so
it isn't my setup files preventing it from working. Double quotes have
the same problem as single. Am I possibly missing a required option or
configuration key (or patch since pws-6)? Does anyone else have the same

One other thought I have relating to the new completion system stems
from the following line which I still have in my .zshrc:

compctl -M 'm:{a-z}={A-Z}'

It might be better if a configuration key was added to give a default
matching control.

The only other compctl line I have left in .zshrc is:
compctl -k '( )' true false
So to completely cleanse my setup of the old completion system I'd also
have to create a function which explicitly completes nothing.

Anyway, thanks Sven for those fixes
