You cannot bind ^s and ^q unless you set the NO_FLOW_CONTROL option, or change
the start/stop characters with stty.  Unfortunately I had some bad experiences
with NO_FLOW_CONTROL which is not related to zsh.  If NO_FLOW_CONTROL is on
and I log in using PPP via modem and issue a command which produces a long
output, the output stops after a while, waits for a few seconds and gives back
the prompt whithout printing the trailing part of the document.  This does not
happend without NO_FLOW_CONTROL.  It is possible that the bad motherboard of
the ppp server is responsible for the problem (the server is a Linux box, and
the kernel prints eth0: interrupted while interrupts are masked messages when
this happens, but it prints this message very often when there are no visible
problems and noonone uses ppp).
