[PATCH] add-zle-hook-widget

The idea and ultimate implementation are the same as in my "crude sketch"
but the function has been rewritten to parallel add-zsh-hook very closely.
This means among other things that you can only add one hook widget per
call to add-zle-hook-widget.

Also as briefly discussed, I removed add-zle-hook-function entirely and
made it a requirement that all the hooks be actual widgets.  However, as
a parallel to add-zsh-hook, the given name is both defined as a widget
and marked as an autoload function if the widget doesn't yet exist.

There are probably still bugs in there somewhere, but all worked as I
expected in a few simple tests.  I have not made much attempt to make
this backward-compatible with past zsh versions, but I think the only
conflict is with the arraname+=(value list) appending syntax.

Patch includes repairs to the add-zsh-hook documentation.

+Several widget names are special to the line editor, as described in the section
+ifnzman(Special Widgets, noderef(Zle Widgets))\
+ifzman(Special Widgets, see zmanref(zshzle)),
+in that they are automatically called at specific points during editing.
+Unlike function hooks, these do not use a predefined array of other names
+to call at the same point; the shell function tt(add-zle-hook-widget)
+maintains a similar array and arranges for the special widget to invoke
+those additional widgets.
+var(hook) is one of tt(isearch-exit), tt(isearch-update),
+tt(line-pre-redraw), tt(line-init), tt(line-finish), tt(history-line-set),
+or tt(keymap-select), corresponding to each of the special widgets
+tt(zle-isearch-exit), etc.
+var(widgetname) is the name of a ZLE widget.  If no options are given this
+is added to the array of widgets to be invoked in the given hook context.
+Note that the hooks are called as widgets, that is, with
+`tt(zle var(widgetname) -Nw)' rather than as a function call.
+The arrays of var(widgetname) are maintained in several tt(zstyle)
+contexts, one for each var(hook) context, with a style of `tt(widgets)'.
+If the tt(-L) option is given, this set of styles is listed with
+`tt(zstyle -L)'.  These styles may be updated directly with tt(zstyle)
+commands, but the special widgets that refer to the styles are created
+only if tt(add-zle-hook-widget) is called to add at least one widget.
+If the option tt(-d) is given, the var(widgename) is removed from
+the array of widgets to be executed.
+If the option tt(-D) is given, the var(widgetname) is treated as a pattern
+and any matching names of widgets are removed from the array.
+If var(widgetname) does not name an existing widget when added to the
+array, it is assumed that a shell function also named var(widgetname) is
+meant to provide the implementation of the widget.  This name is therefore
+marked for autoloading, and the options tt(-U), tt(-z) and tt(-k) are
+passed as arguments to tt(autoload) as with tt(add-zsh-hook).  The
+widget is also created with `tt(zle -N var(widgetname))' to cause the
+corresponding function to be loaded the first time the hook is called.
+In addition, var(widgetname) may be of the form var(index)tt(:)var(name).
+In this case var(index) is an integer which determines the order in
+which the widget var(name) will be called relative to other widgets in
+the array.  Widgets having the same var(index) are called in unspecified
+order, and all widgets declared with an index are called before any
+widgets that have no index.
