So the handling of special-dirs is really done in the C code for compfiles?

} Eh?  Works for me.  And _files can call _path_files without the -g
} option, in line 80.

I'm sorry, I must be mis-reading the difference between
    _path_files -g "$pat" "$opts[@]" "$expl[@]" && ret=0
    _path_files "$expl[@]" -g "$pat" "$opts[@]" && ret=0

In any case, special-dirs doesn't work for me.  I finally narrowed it
down to this:

    zstyle ':completion:*' file-sort modification

Why should the file-sort style have any effect at all on special-dirs?
