Let me add another observation. There are areas within zsh and the docs
where I (perhaps falsely) believe I have a good idea how things work or
hang together. And then there are a couple other bits which to my mind
are almost beyond comprehension and which I approach with, shall we say,
some apprehension. The completion system is one of those and I readily
admit that I could and should invest a good chunk of time to try to get
a handle on that.

Many decades ago, I bought a 6502 microcomputer and big blue book about
6502 assembly language. I knew nothing about computers, let alone
machine language, and I read that book perhaps five times until I began
to get a glimmer of an idea what this stuff was all about. I was on a
long and boring holiday then, so time was no problem:-) and so I read it
again and still again until it started to make sense.
