It's rather a user-end use of true color escape codes, than Zshell's
automatic coloring via region_highlight or complist module.

The ini is my own invention for fast-syntax-highlighting, directly it
has nothing to do with Zshell's region_highlight.

True color is a great thing, I hope someone will start recognition if
it's possible with Zshell.

That's great news, I hoped that hacking is limitless and a way around
color pair numbers and definitions will be found. Do you know how was
ncurses API adapted for this true-color support?
