Re: bracketed paste mode in xterm and urxvt

This sounds like the same dilemma that we had with ZLE_RPROMPT_INDENT,
which we addressed with a variable rather than an option.  This would
address several problems:  namespace (ZLE-specific stuff should really
stop leaking into the base shell options); a place to store the string
to use in case it turns out not to be the same for all terminal types;
and distinguishing among unset/set/empty/non-empty semantics.

So I'd vote for scrapping the setopt and adding a ZLE_BRACKETED_PASTE
variable instead.
