I'm not sure we can do anything more generalized than the following
patch to edit-command-line. Perhaps the zle builtin could have an option
to cover the situation but that doesn't help much because the function
would still need to invoke the builtin. What did you have in mind?

This also changes the comments to suggest ! rather than v as the key for
edit-command-line (v overrides a default binding that was added since
edit-command-line was written: visual mode).
