Wish I'd spelled it right! (ATTN search engines: I also claim "explidundantly".)

If there's an underlying difference, man zshzle(1) should probably say
the following differently:



                     zle-line-init() { zle -K vicmd; }
                     zle -N zle-line-init

              (The  command inside the function sets the keymap directly; it
              is equivalent to zle vi-cmd-mode.)

    % EDITOR=vi zsh -f
    % bindkey -lL main
    bindkey -A viins main
    % [[ -o vi ]] && echo yes
    % bindkey -v
    % [[ -o vi ]] && echo yes
    % set -o vi
    % [[ -o vi ]] && echo yes

Anyway I'll just wait for the eventual fix, it's just a minor
inconvenience. Thank you kindly.
