Re: _man igores global matchers

I wrote:
} This patch drops the filtering on man page name and instead slurps up all
} the file basenames into the `rep' array, then passes that and the global
} matcher spec to compadd to let it sort out the mess.  If you have several
} matchers this can get pretty slow, so it ought at least to cache `rep'
} somewhere during the loop over the matchers; as it stands this is mostly
} a proof of concept.

Here's a better variation, which actually does cache the results for one
pass around the matcher loop.  It's quite a bit faster than with the
patch from 14621, but still slower than the existing _man.

The diff is bigger than the file, because of re-indentation, so I've just
attached the entire file.
