Thanks for looking.  Go ahead and apply them, if you like.  Translation:
I'm not likely to have time for this.  However, I will get round to it
eventually.  Some of them I'm surprised I didn't apply straight away.

_nice: remember what was committed was not quite the patch that appeared.

This is the failed autoload fix... I was pretty convinced that this had
to be correct to prevent some horrific problems, the more so the more I
thought about it, but Bart didn't seem quite so convinced, so I never
got around to committing it back to 4.0.

This fixes a minor memory leak when entering a subshell.  Since it only
happens once in the subshell when you enter it, I vaguely thought it was
unnecessarily complicated to port back to 4.0, but it seems to be
working so it's probably OK.

I don't think zle -F was in 4.0.

I think this also applies only to 4.1, since 4.0 doesn't have the
(slightly hairy) fix that (( foo = ... )) didn't work if foo expanded to
something that couldn't be parsed as an arithmetic expression, even
though it correctly assigned it if it did.

This fixed a problem with [ -d = ... ].  Bart's question never got
answered, but I don't suppose it will without some hairier test tests.
