Uhm, too bad.  I am wondering whether case insensitivity in the
matcher could be achieved with a different trick?

Maybe somehow like this: Bart Schaefer once sent me a nifty function
to replace a leading 7 with a slash (common typing mistake on German

function _7slash {
   if [[ $words[CURRENT] = 7(#b)(*)(#e) ]]
     compadd -U -X 'Correct leading 7 to /' -f /$match[1]

But no, I guess case insensitivity is a lot more complex, right?


 Whenever you meet yourself you're in a time loop or in front of a mirror.
