Yes, that's correct.  The syntax file only handles the subset of yodl
used by Doc/Zsh/*.yo.  It doesn't attempt to handle a "generally useful"
subset of yodl (a quick check says there are many yodl macros that the
zsh manual doesn't use).

Perhaps I should advertise the zyodl.vim's existence to the yodl-users@
list so that someone might pick it up and build a generic yodl.vim on
top of it.  The problem with this plan is, there's no such list ☹
