It's been there since before the zsh sources were in CVS, and it must
have been added by Sven during the time when he was sending patches
as encoded tarballs because a search of the archives turns up nothing.

(Curiously, reversemenucomplete() was modified in a commit that Sven's
commit log attributes to workers/10609, but the corresponding diffs
are not in that message.)

Anyway, there is no hook for *forward* menu-completion, but one for
reverse was explicitly included, so someone at some point must have
thought there was a reason a module would need to know when the list
was supposed to start at the wrong end.

I dunno.
