I'll have a look at the weekend. Let's see if we can do it with

As I already said, the globals in the completion system shouldn't be a 
problem if we just prevent it from being called while it is still
active (I haven't looked yet, maybe we already do that -- I have the
impression that I shoudl now this, hm). The globals in zle: for now we 
only need to protect those that can be touched by using the `zle'
builtin. The stuff used for the lexer/parser/execution code shouldn't
be a problem either because they are already saved and restored. And
for the rest we could probably start by making the protected section
somewhat larger than necessary (the functions used in the hashtable
structs might be good candidates, for example).

And then there is also the issue of moving the shell code into the
final directory structure.

Is our goal to bring out 4.0 before christmas? (`zsh christmas edition'?)
Sounds like a good goal and considering that we got only few bug
reports lately and quite a few people already seem to use 3.1.x...
