Useful research, thank you.

Yes, what should happen is that _zsh-mime-handler finds it shouldn't be
handling todo.sh in this case and despatching to normal completion
instead.  There were some (at least three) glitches with this.  This
fixes the ones I found.

- zsh-mime-handler didn't handle the "-l" option for stuff it passed
through without handling.  (This should simply end up with $words
being pruned from the front.)

- _zsh-mime-handler didn't keep empty arguments, which is what
you get when you first try completion on a word.

- _zsh-mime-handler updated $words but didn't update $CURRENT.  Best
guess is to keep $CURRENT at the same offset from the end of $words.
