You may have missed my point.  That option which I quoted is offered by
the very first zsh-newuser-install prompt (NOT by a submenu), and is NOT
offered by any further prompts, either.  Therefore the user experience,
if choosing this option, is very different to the "browse through
submenus" experience that zsh-newuser-install also offers.
