Updated "sticky-note" application

I'm just going to include the whole file here, the diff is 25% larger.

A variant on the above is now folded into sticky-note so that you can
simply put a call to sticky-note in the zle-line-init widget.  There
are also styles for controlling the look and behavior.

#!/bin/zsh -fi
# A zsh sticky-note ("post-it") application.  Load this file as a function:
#    autoload -Uz sticky-note
# It may then be bound as a widget:
#    zle -N sticky-note
# And/or run as a command:
#    sticky-note
#    sticky-note -b
#    sticky-note -l ...
# The -b option is like "zed -b": it installs keymaps/bindings only.
# Use the -l option to list previous sticky notes.  Most options of the
# "fc -l" command are supported, for selecting which notes to display.
# If "sticky-note -l" is run from inside a widget, the cursor is moved
# to the top left of the terminal before display and returned to its
# original position after display.  The -l option is implicitly added
# when sticky-note is called from zle-line-init, to avoid inadvertently
# trapping the user inside the note editor.
# Otherwise, invoke the line editor with the previous notes available
# as an editor history.  Two quick taps on the return/enter key finish
# the note, or you can use use ^X^W as usual (ZZ in vicmd mode).

# The application is configured by three zstyles, all using the context
# ":sticky-note".  The first two styles are "notefile" and "maxnotes"
# to name the file in which notes are stored and the maximum number of
# notes to retain:
#   zstyle :sticky-note notefile ~/.zsticky
#   zstyle :sticky-note maxnotes 1000

# The "theme" style may be set to control the appearance of the notes.
# The style is an associative array; the current set of values (defaults
# in parens) are:
#   bg    => name or ANSI escape for background color (yellow)
#   fg    => name or ANSI escape for foreground color (black)
#   color => ANSI escape for color scheme ($theme[bg]$theme[fg])
#   reset => ANSI escape to restore "normal" colors
# Values given as names are looked up in the $bg and $fg arrays from the
# "colors" function.  If a "color" field is set, the "bg" and "fg" fields
# are not used.  Example:
#   zstyle :sticky-note theme \
#     bg red \
#     fg $fg_bold[yellow]

# For backwards compatibility with an earlier version, the notefile may
# also be named by the STICKYFILE variable (defaults to $HOME/.zsticky).
# The number of notes stored may be given by STICKYSIZE (1000).

# I encourage all you creative people to contribute enhancements ...
