In the penultimate paragraph of the comment, the two possibilities for the
relative path cover three cases:

- The comment is read in the source tree

- The comment is read in an installed tree with --enable-function-subdirs

- The comment is read in an installed tree with --disable-function-subdirs

+# Dear reader: This function is called "__arguments" and is the completion
+# function for the completion function _arguments.  This function, however, is
+# not the completion function _arguments.  If you're looking for the function
+# _arguments, then you've come to the wrong place.
+#
+# _arguments is a completion utility function.  It is called by completion
+# functions for command-line tools.
+#
+# __arguments is a completion function for _arguments.  It runs when one does
+# `_arguments -<TAB>' at the shell prompt to jog one's memory about _arguments'
+# option flags.
+#
+# _arguments is in documented in the manual.  If you were looking for its
+# source code, that'd be either in ../../../Completion/Base/Utility/_arguments
+# or in ./_arguments, depending on where you're reading this file.
+#
+# __arguments takes no arguments.
