Re: "fake" style requires at least one real match?

In my testing, the (q) flag in there is preventing ignored-patterns
from working because the | separators get quoted. My guess is that
(q) was added as a hurried after-thought at the time of users/10988
to allow for special characters in a named directory name. Either that,
or it was tested with only one named directory.
${(kj.|.)nameddirs:q} will work instead.

Also seems odd to restrict the style to the complete completer.

This is down to the explicit -n "$PREFIX" condition. It was there in _cd
from 3.1.7 so is not a change.
