Great. I'll commit this upstream as soon as I can. Thanks.
I suggest, debian does the same (maybe you could update your patch for
One nit: you reported this against version 4.3.6-6; however vcs_info was
shipped with zsh 4.3.7 for the first time. ...so unless debian's 4.3.6-6
package ships it on its own, I doubt that's correct. :)
Anyway, debian's maintainers will know how to handle this.
