One last question for you, Frank.  In the interest of maintaining a minimal configuration, are all 8 lines required for this functionality?  My setup is the out-of-the-box grml configuration:
*Unmodified /etc/zsh/zshrc
*Unmodified /etc/skel/.zshrc (in my $HOME)
*8 line $HOME/.zshrc.local

Thanks again.
