I'm not sure what this means ... the 20141010-zsh_show_ambiguity page has
not changed since I first looked at it.  Oh, you mean that I responded
on the users/18440 thread.  In any case there's nothing in either your
page or the docs to indicate that bad syntax in list-colors will garble
the completion display.

I don't know that it makes any difference to efficiency, but to have
the ambiguity disply overlaid on top of the other coloring would require
changes to the complist internals.

The main thing this is telling me is that we need more examples of how
to set list-colors.
