(Finally moved this to zsh-workers.)

Here's a much simpler way.  It strikes me that actually I could have set
POSIX_ARGZERO, but maybe this is useful.

By the way, looking at the code I just notice that the following isn't
an error even though it doesn't do what you presumably expect:

% setopt posixargzero
% print $0
% 0=foo
% print $0

Maybe that's OK so far, but you don't even get the value back when you
unset the option; it's silently lost.  It seems a bit pointless since
you'd get the same value of $0 with POSIX_ARGZERO set even if it stored
the value in the normal argzero space the way it seems to imply it did.
