No. Setting the parameter disables all additional keyboard setup in the
global zshrc. Hence the name. With it set, you get the default zsh
behaviour. It doesn't make any effort to support any special keys (like
PgUp, etc) whatsoever.

And that doesn't set smkx mode. IIRC, it was decided not to set smkx
mode by default, to avoid breaking existing configs, not because it
would be the wrong thing to do.

Oh-kay. That makes me pretty happy, I don't have to look that. :-)

If it's just zsh, and zshenv sets a variable, that'll be set in zshrc
(which is read after zshenv). So the variable can just be accessed in
zshrc without any more effort. I have no idea what that package does,
that would break that.
