The Hosts lines in .ssh/config are glob patterns.  Both '*' and '?' are
valid characters.  With farms of machines under a consistent naming
scheme, this comes into play.

Further, multiple patterns can be on the same line, so you can have
hostnames and patterns.  I look at my config now ... ugh.  Way to make
things bad: have a section of your ~/.ssh/config delimited by magic
comments used by another script when generating an updated config file.

I think that:
 ${=${${(M)${(f)"$(<~/.ssh/config)"}:#Host*}#Host }:#*\**}
should be:
 ${${=${(M)${(f)"$(<~/.ssh/config)"}:#Host*}#Host }:#*[\*\?]*}

This splits on $IFS earlier so that the outer :# filter applies on a
per-item basis instead of per-line, and adds '?' to the filter pattern.

And people wonder why I laugh when they describe _Perl_ as a line-noise
language.  ;-)
