I removed the '&& ret=0'. I followed the recipe from another completion
function... hence the extra cruft. Likewise I have some extra colons in
the options.

You mean something like:
	_wanted hosts expl 'host name' _hosts
That does work better.....

I'm attaching the next version...... criticism is welcome.

Do I still need this line?

I am just starting to get to grips with the new completion stuff after
putting it off for years. You've all done a great job with the default
completions that most of the job is done. Thanks.
