z-sy-h assumes that zle-line-finish sets $WIDGET, but doesn't assume
anything else about $WIDGET.

Indeed it isn't: the unidiff I'd sent was not the unidiff I would commit
if that option is chosen.  Its purpose was not to be committed as is,
only to unambiguously explain what the second alternative was.

Sorry if that wasn't clear.

Okay, so let's wait for Mikael to weigh in, then we can choose between
making pre-redraw set $WIDGET or making a-z-h-w handle pre-redraw's not
doing so.

Thanks for checking (1).  I can reproduce (2), the prompt character
doesn't render and <accept-line> doesn't move down the screen.
