The point here is that you *do* want the external command to change it
--- but maybe only sometimes.

I certainly agree it's not important enough to break anything, but I'm
not entirely sure another global makes sense anyway --- when would you
use it that you didn't instead use the existing one?  You'd effectively
have a three-way switch --- zle mode, sane mode, user-defined mode ---
and defining the way the switch works is going to be difficult,
particularly given the fairly ill-defined way the effective two-way
switch plus additional sanity works at the moment.

As long as no one really expects ttyctl to save the state we can drop
