Well, it says (or tries to say) that this suff-behaviour is only done
when not using menu-completion. I think we either had a discussion or
I thought that people using menu-completion wouldn't want to be
bothered with looong lists.

But anyway, that style appears to be broken (both prefix and
suffix). I seem to have a fix for the suffix thing now (it was broken
when list-suffixes was added, I think) and I know what's the problem
for the prefix part (compfiles building the pattern, so that
_path_files doesn't have the original anymore and doesn't add it to
$exppaths). I'll look into this tomorrow or next week.

Restoring those things would still not make it work with menu
completion, though (the suffix thing), but that could be added. Should
