I mean what tag-order is supposed to be for, preferring matches for
earlier tags if there are any ("shown" isn't the right word except in
so much as they are shown if you're listing).  If there are matches for
local heads, I want to see only these, so it doesn't go round the tag
loop to find other matches.  That's supposed to be fairly
straightforward to do.

There must be *something* special about the git competion that's
preventing it, though probably obscure and quite likely a side effect of
some completion "feature".  I can see this working with Perforce:

  zstyle ':completion:*:p4-*:at-suffix:*' tag-order changes '*'

correctly limits completion after

  p4 files Makefile@

to just changes applicable to Makefile and not, for example, labels ---
labels and changes mean something for present purposes pretty much like
tags and commits (don't write in if you're a Perforce expert :-)).
That's the general effect I'm after.

That's what I'm trying to avoid.  There are way too many other results
to make the listing remotely useful unless I limit it.  I'd like to
focus on getting that to work.  I already have grouping under headings
which is enough for visibility for the matches I do want.
