An idea that I just had, spawned in part by Oliver's change to
"print -v" behavior when the target variable is declared as an array:

If ZLE_PASTED has been declared, then the pasted text is copied there
instead of into CUTBUFFER.  If it's been declared as an array, it
acts similarly to $killring, i.e., the pasted text is unshifted to
the front and the last element is dropped.
