I wasn't trying to imply that fpath should be backwards compatible indefinitely
or that using completers from master with older shells is the smartest of ideas*.

Just that in this particular instance, since the completer has already long used
typeset in the old way; that reverting this one would make typeset's usage consistent
throughout this sole function.

* Even i've picked individual completers from master that i knew fixed bugs like
  users/20219, discarding them once i have a newer release on that machine.
