Haven't caught up with my inbox yet, but in the meantime:

      already active, and needs to be turned off when the first command is
      executed.  The shell doesn't even know if the remaining text is input
      to a command or for the shell, so there's simply nothing it can do.
      However, if you have problems you can trick it: type `tt({)' on a line
      by itself, then paste the input, then type `tt(})' on a line by
      itself.  The shell will not execute anything until the final brace is
      read; all input is read as continuation lines (this may require the
      fixes referred to above in order to be reliable).
+     As of 5.0.9, this trick is not necessary on terminal emulators that
+     support the em(bracketed paste) feature (this includes most modern
+     terminal emulators).  See the description of tt($zle_bracketed_paste)
+     in the tt(zshparam) manual page for details.
