 I've been using this tip since the day it was posted here and it worked
great: pressing Ctrl-C is much more convenient/easier to remember than
using a separate key combination for "cancel but save in history" that I
used before, thanks Simon! However today I accidentally found out that
pressing Ctrl-C on a line starting with '-' results in

	TRAPINT:1: bad option: -

error message. The fix for this is, of course, obvious but I thought to
post it here just in case anybody else decides to copy this from the list
archives to their .zshrc, so here is the updated function:

	% which TRAPINT
		zle && print -s -- $BUFFER
		return $1

 Thanks again to Simon for the original tip!
