Yes, I was in the process of moving a whole load of stuff from zle.h to
zsh.h and turning ZLE_CHAR_T into ZCHAR_T, and so on.  It was in aid of
turning the completion code (the libraries, not the interaction with the
lexical analyser in the main shell) into wide characters instead of multibyte
characters, although this bit stood alone.  I stopped because I wondered
whether it was a good idea to have wide characters in completion after
all:  one of the good features at the moment is being able to use
completion even if the locale is a bit off base, and we would probably
lose that.  The part that needs redoing anyway is the matching control,
which is based around 256 octet character sets.
