In recent zsh you can use
  autoload -r zztop
and then whence -v output and $functions_source will include the path
(but you also can't change that path later by changing $fpath).

That pretty much obliterates the whole reason for "autoload".

If you don't like "autoload -r" at the time of declaring all the
autoloads, you can use "autoload +X" at the time you want the source
of a particular function.

     The flag +X attempts to load each NAME as an autoloaded function,
     but does _not_ execute it. ...
     ... This does _not_ replace any existing definition ...

  vim "+/function $name\\|$name *()" $functions_source[$name]
be sufficient in nearly all cases?
