I see, but it is not used (nor recommended to be used) by default (with "true" or "other).

Is it possible to use it dynamically, e.g. after "git branch -D" only?

The tag in this context appears to be ":completion::complete:git-branch::", which is not specific enough (for including the "-D"), but might make sense anyway?

    zstyle ":completion::complete:git-branch:*" ignore-line true

A drawback of using this seems to be that it would also ignore branches named "branch" then..

Additionally, it won't work when using a function ("gb"), where completion is linked to via:

    compdef _git gb=git-branch

But this can be fixed by using this instead:

    compdef -e 'words=(git branch ${words[2,-1]}); ((CURRENT++)); _normal' gb

It seems like the special handling in _git makes sense, but could be generalized?!
Then it would have to use something else than $CURRENT, which refers to $words, while
it uses $line, which appears to be something shorter / more specific?!
And then the current word needs to be excluded, too.
