Copy-paste error, I missed the closing paren on this assignment:

  local funcs=(${(kv)functions})

One more note after re-reading the original request more closely:

If "foo" is already defined, it has to be removed with "unfunction
foo" before "autoload foo" will have any effect.  The "&&" there
doesn't help, because autoload is a silent but status-zero no-op for
functions that are already defined.  "autoload -R foo && foo" would
solve that.
