Yep, whatever you guys like is fine by me..

Those sound like good things to worry about getting right.

Right, I certainly don't either..

Anyway, here's a new version of my previous code using this
enhancement which also preserves the kill ring.  There isn't
a builtin module for base64 encoding is there?  :-)

function zle-encode-strings () {
  python -c '
import base64, sys
sys.stdout.write(":".join(map(lambda v: base64.encodestring(v).replace("\n", ""), sys.argv[1:])))
' $@

function zle-decode-string () {
  python -c '
import base64, sys
' $1

function zle-line-init () {
  local v i=0
  if [[ ${ZLEKILLRINGPID-} != $$ && -n ${ZLECUTBUFFER-} ]] ; then
    CUTBUFFER="$(zle-decode-string $ZLECUTBUFFER)"
    for v in ${(s-:-)ZLEKILLRING} ; do
      killring[((i++))]="$(zle-decode-string $v)"
zle -N zle-line-init

function zle-line-finished () {
  export ZLECUTBUFFER="$(zle-encode-strings $CUTBUFFER)"
  export ZLEKILLRING="$(zle-encode-strings $killring[@])"
zle -N zle-line-finished
