It's exactly as far as it has always been.  Zsh's internal
implementation of indexed arrays does not support
pointers-to-pointers, and associative arrays have always had most of
the plumbing for that but not what might be called the contextual
clues.  None of what's in these patches gets any closer to refactoring
for either case.
