Ok, I will have to rewrite parts of code to use that. Ran callgrind to
see the bottleneck when utilizing 5.3.1-dev-0 optimizations via the
"special construct" I mentioned:

196,685,461  arrlen [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]
179,629,793  itype_end [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]
159,548,348  stringsubst [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]
 85,139,775  paramsubst [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]
 84,031,867  szone_free_definite_size
 61,686,940  hasbraces [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]
 58,934,416  remnulargs [/usr/local/bin/zsh-5.3.1-dev-0_O2]

Not that expected, the array of 7000 lines at final, to induce arrlen to
top. However, that's only 9% (196685461.0 / 2171855290 * 100). Wonder
what's itype_end and what stringsubst is doing.

For e.g. devops, to be able to use text-area in some e.g. deploy tool.
To have some buttons like "run", "restart", and a 100-lines config file
that needs just e.g. IP address alterations. The editor is just 58 lines
of code, I hope people will understand how much cheap textual-UI they
can get. vared doesn't integrate with buttons, list-boxes, etc.

Here's the editor, looks quite scary hehe:
