git clone doesn't seem to complete http: style URLs either.

Thanks for this. I've got a few comments.

Except the --all is missing.

With --push, the old URL is, I believe, still valid. And with --delete, it
is the new one that should be excluded.

The (3) exclusion should work. Perhaps add the numbers into the next arg
specifications to make it clearer given that they're being referenced.

That seems correct to me and not an assumption.

That looks like leftover debug.

The tag should be 'urls' rather than 'url'.

Various styles can affect what _description adds. matcher-list for
example. Don't rely on that.

I'd be inclined to throw away the inherited arguments. A space in the
_arguments spec prevents them from being added:

  '3:old url: __git_current_remote_url $line[1]'

Or make the helper function not be a completion function so that you
have something like:
  '3:old url:compadd - $(__git_current_remote_url $line[1])'

> +    # TODO: add --push to the `git remote get-url` command in case `git remote set-url --push origin <new url> <TAB>` is completed

Adding ${(k)opt_args[--push]} should get you that. It also needs --all
adding in case there are more than one.
