Actually, it wouldn't be hard to add a session cookie to the context
giving you separate history files for separate sessions---the context
mechanism is flexible enough that this is really quite easy.  I'm
already adding the directory to the end of the context.  The history
file variable could be a list, so you you could specify

  zstyle ":zhist:$SOME_SESSION_COOKIE:*" local-history-file \
    .zsh_local_history ~/.history_$SOME_SESSION_COOKIE

or whatever.  (I've decided something other than :zle: would be more

There's no reason why the resulting mechanism shouldn't have a "local"
history in a more general sense than I originally intended.
