Zsh does something even more interesting.  When the completion is the
beginning of a word, it searches for the text in the path.

  $ echo =ls

Fortunately, it will complete ./= 'tab', or \{arch\}/= 'tab'.  You can
do {arch}/ and hit tab, but it won't complete the {arch} until you do
the close brace.  Once you hit tab, it turns {arch}/ into \{arch\}/.
