I'd prefer that the cache location be relative to $ZDOTDIR rather than
relative to $HOME, and that it not be two levels removed, e.g. use
$ZDODTIR/.zcompcache/ rather than ~/.zsh/cache/.  That'd be consistent
with e.g. .zcompdump.

(Also, selfishly, I'm already using ~/.zsh/ for something else and I don't
want this stepping in it.)

    typeset +g "$@[2,-1]" > "$_cache_dir/$_cache_ident"

what you want?  Or maybe

    while (($# > 1)); do
      ${(P)=1:+typeset $1}
    done > "$_cache_dir/$_cache_ident"

would be more accurate?
