Obscure?  <sigh>

FWIW, we do have our man pages online:


which documents # and E and O, as well as ^ and _.  So I don't know why it
didn't work, unless the underlying implementation is broken, which is
entirely possible (and likely enough that I'd say you should just keep the
test as it is and I'll go make sure the appropriate bug is filed and just
live with the test failure for now).

Still, it seems like the test should be able to distinguish between broken
zsh code and broken system code.  Or not really care about what extensions
the implementation supports, if everything is just a system-dependent
