I wrote _telnet with the telnet source of FreeBSD.

It may have short option "-n" and long options "-noasynch",
"-noasynchtty" and "-noasynchnet" under some circumstances.  These
long options are implemented by special case of short option "-n".

When completion is tryed just after "-n", zsh cannot decide that it is
the short option or not.  So, _telnet should complete option arguments
for "-n" and long options as:

% telnet -<TAB>
-n -noasynch -noasynchtty -noasynchnet and other options

% telnet -n<TAB>
-noasynch -noasynchtty -noasynchnet and filenames

% telnet -n <TAB>

% telnet -no<TAB>
-noasynch -noasynchtty -noasynchnet and filenames start with "o".

_arguments cannot handle this, maybe.
