Actually, I have already added a mechanism for that, see the
description for _all_labels in the docs (which is referred to under
_requested, which is referred to under _wanted). If the command-args
given to any of these functions contains a `-', the options are added
before it, if the hyphen is the last argument, it is replaced with the
options. And since latter options override earlier onces for compadd,
clean functions should probably use things like:

  _wanted users expl user compadd "$@" -k userdirs -

(note the added `-' at the end)

But I have to admit that I always forget to do that, too. Sorry.
