I've changed it; I don't think I ever tried this out, but there's
no reason why it shouldn't work.

At this point in the code we're dealing entirely with items supposedly
directly added by the user, which are therefore made visible in
zle_refresh.c.  General handling for highlighting would be very useful but
isn't that easy.  It's particularly hard if you want to track the start and
end of special effects through future modifications to the line.
