zstyle -e ":completion::complete:*:option-o-1:" file-patterns '(( ${+funcstack[_gcc]} )) && reply=( … )'


More generally, I think it might be nice if the code evaluated by
«zstyle -e» could be told what context it's being looked up under.
Something like this:

% zstyle -e '*' foo 'echo $CONTEXT > /dev/tty'
% zstyle -s bar foo REPLY

(though the name $CONTEXT is already taken)

I don't know how likely it is to evolve, but I suppose we could drop
the list of extensions in a variable, «cc_extensions=( c h cc C cxx cpp
hpp )», then you'll be able to use «zstyle -e» to build on top of it?

Sure.  This? —
