Have a look at Functions/Zle/url-quote-magic, which relies on being able
to substitute itself for the self-insert ZLE builtin.  You can skip over
the introductory comments about zstyles and focus on the function at the

A difficulty with this technique is that it becomes difficult to cascade
it with other similar techniques; ZLE doesn't have emacs' concept of
"advice" around a keybinding.
