Re: clear-screen widget and prompt expansion

Ah.  Well, clear-screen is a widget and existed in primordial form
long before the shell even knew about SIGWINCH, so it's not very
surprising that it hasn't been overhauled with more recent changes
to prompt handling.

This raises the question of whether redisplay (^R) should also imply
a reset-prompt.  However, it explicitly says "the edit buffer" whereas
clear-screen mentions "redraw the prompt".

}   zle -A clear-screen real-clear-screen
}   cls-rp() { zle real-clear-screen; zle reset-prompt }
}   zle -N clear-screen cls-rp
} [...] doesn't work in incremental search mode

That's because incremental-search has its own input loop and does not
recognize user-defined widgets.  An entirely different problem.

Does the following break anything?
