comment zsh completion - show more options than just the alias
Tried that out in various contexts, none worked. However, this answer gave me some ideas, and I've now figured it out! What I needed was regular. I'll add it as an actual answer.

comment alias vs export for simple commands
@deltab ah, yes, I do know about that distinction, thanks to grep's colouring issues. Thank you for pointing it out.

comment alias vs export for simple commands
ah, I didn't know that! So if I have export LESS='-R' in my .zshrc, open a zsh session, and then switch to bash in that same session (with no export in .bashrc), the environment variable will still be set? I would have thought both would be lost....

comment alias vs export for simple commands
@slm It isn't opinion-based, or at least it wasn't meant to be. One could require a lot more overhead, and unnecessarily use resources, especially in a more complex scenario. One could be conventionally more correct in the *nix world, or maybe there's even a formal standard somewhere. Programmers get annoyed over "sloppy coding" all the time, even when for all intents and purposes it achieves the same goal.
