Re: show-ambiguity style

This is interesting. I had also missed it.

I ran into something that perhaps is impossible to solve. If I use the

zstyle ':completion:*' list-colors ${(s.:.)LS_COLORS}
zstyle ':completion:*' show-ambiguity $color[bg-red]

I only get EITHER the file type coloring or the ambiguity indication,
depending on the order of those two lines.

In an ideal world, I would like to have the file type coloring, AND then
something that indicates where the ambiguity starts, but this is perhaps
not possible to achieve?
