The bash completion script is now generated from mh-chart.man, see etc/bash_completion_nmh-gen.  Maybe that could be generalized to support zsh?  And tcsh, if there's any demand?

docs/COMPLETION-ZSH has paths like ~/Mail and /usr/local/nmh/lib.  https://buildfarm.opencsw.org/source/xref/opencsw/csw/mgar/pkg/nmh/trunk/files/0001-use-csw-locations.patch changes one of these for Solaris.  Perhaps mhparam(1) should be used to make it more general, even if that doesn't satisfy Solaris.  A comment about avoiding mhpath(1) for speed can probably be ignored because of the interim improvement in machines.

Perhaps all the three docs/COMPLETION-{BASH,TCSH,ZSH} should be in the contrib subdirectory?  Or installed for users to '.'?  (Without the shouty names.)
