If the zsh case is never going to use any of the common code for other

} If there is ever an intended effect of specifying '*:' as a helpspec,
} then it would better to fix _arguments to do the intended job.
} So anyway '*:' seems to have no effect on how the options are ordered.
} What is the intended effect of '*:' as a help spec?

The person who could definitively answer that hasn't read this list in
at least a decade.  Maybe someone else remembers, but I don't.
