} To the best of my knowedge, zsh has never allowed grouping to cross
} directories, i.e. not even (Src/Zle) is supported.

Well, ok, then ... drop the / from the example:

zsh% echo zsh-3.1.5/((#i)src|doc)/make*

Should the case-insensitivity end at the )/ or not?  (I just got these
patches compiled, and presently it does stop at close of group, which I
think is good.)

} everything between the / and the next ) is ignored. [...]

} % /(bin|var)/false
} zsh: permission denied: /
} It seems zsh treats (and has always treated) left parentheses inside the
} command word differently.

Hm.  I don't think grouping needs to work inside the command word, but
there should not be an implicit word break before the paren:

zagzig<7> echo(config.|stamp-)h
config.h stamp-h

Rather I'd expect to see some sort of parse error, or command-not-found.
