Like this:

diff --git a/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names b/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names
index f8188774d..70b0ddcad 100644
--- a/Completion/Zsh/Type/_command_names

     'jobs:: _jobs -t'
     'parameters:: _parameters -g "^*(readonly|association)*" -qS= -r "\n\t\- =[+"'

Note that an alias does not have to be global in order to be able to be used in
command position; that is: depending on what your alias does, it might be
better to simply remove the -g from its definition.

Thanks for including this; it made it easy to find the right function.
