Re: contect sensitive remapping <enter>

Unfortunately there's no such thing as context-sensitive key rebinding.
There are certain "contexts" that change to new keymaps, but those are
effectively recursive invocations of the editor, not contexts in the sense
used by the completion system.

So the best you can do is to redefine the accept-line widget to always
test for this situation, invoke completion if need be, and then fall
through to "zle .accept-line".

You'd need an ordinary widget for the accept-line replacement, plus a
completion widget to handle the context testing and possible completion.
Call the completion widget from the accept-line replacement with the
"zle" command.

I'd start by getting ordinary completion to work as you want for the
commands in question before attempting anything with accept-line.
