What I read is that is how it works now. I'm wondering if zszshould be changed
so that it does regenerate the prompt between commands?
-  Is there some standard that this behavior matches?
-  Do people believe this is the best/most useful behavior?
-  Would it be difficult to change zszsho regenerate the prompt when it is
redrawn (such as when job status is printed)?
- Could a redraw be forced by events such as typing through a "zlzleedraw
prompt" command within a zlzleidget?

I ask since I think it would be useful to have the prompt update on demand and
as it is redrawn.  Some examples:
- asasynchronousvents (such as jobs completing)
- ability to report on zlzletatus that could change due to typing (current vi
mode/kekeymapprediction on/off, last completer used)
-ability to do things like change directory from zlzleidgets and have the
prompt reflect a new cwcwd
