[PATCH v2] zsh pidof completion


Below is zsh completions for the pidof(1) command tested with:

pidof from procps-ng 3.3.10

It would seem that pidof is Linux specific but if it's available for
other platforms then we could of course move it under Unix/Command (and
since ps(1) is horribly platform specific we'd need to handle different
ps(1) variants then).

This version now uses _sequence for -o as suggested by Daniel Shahaf.

It might also be nice to provide a generic _process_names type
completion like there's one now for _pids but I'll leave it for a
separate, future effort. _process_names would offer process names
instead of process IDs, there might few potential users for it in
the tree already (_killall, _lldb, and _pgrep).
