Ah, I only checked with an echo. Is it expected that the line is saved
at all though? If you do a get-line and then ctrl-c twice, it is not
saved, so a possible argument that "you accepted the first part of the
line when you pressed enter" seems a bit weak to me.

Usually when I get a continuation prompt it's because I mistyped
something, so I press ctrl-c to get out of the continuation and then
retrieve it with uparrow and try again. Saving all these mistakes in
the history doesn't seem useful, and I don't see any reasonable way
that zshaddhistory would be able to tell that it was a continuation
