Yes, you make a good point here.

You gave a quite nice list of features here, and with very concise
configuration settings that do not depend on each other.

I would actually *love* to have a zshcheatsheet manual page with this
sort of thing.

Small, concise examples of single features that you might want or you
are completely unaware of (which happens very often).

I remember finding several of these lists online.

A list like this would be incredibly useful not only to newcomers, but
to existing users also.

This would be, in my mind, incredibly more useful than the newusers
