All this is a frustration about "compinit does everything". If there
was "compinit" and "compinit_examine_fpath", it would be all much
simpler. User would init completion at beginning of .zshrc, which is a
natural location for "init" things, and then "compinit_examine_fpath"
at end, which is also natural. All this resolved by providing
compdef() stub gathering compdef calls and allowing to replay them
after compinit placed at bottom of .zshrc.
