I've been wondering whether _main_complete shouldn't do something like

[[ -t 2 ]] && exec 2>/dev/null

The problem of course is that there's no way to guarantee that the FD is
restored properly when the function exits.  ZLE itself closes and then
later restores stdin, so the `exec </dev/null' is safe, but anything that
triggers a zerr() can potentially prevent the function from restoring any
other FDs.

Maybe we've finally got a good enough handle on the zerr/zwarn thing that
we don't need to worry about this ... but I do anyway.
