Re: send-break or EOF exit the shell in "vared"

Happened upon this while reviewing something else ...

Looking at this a bit more closely, ^G is treated as an interrupt
here.  This solves the issue:

zsh -c '{ vared -c a; } always {
  echo in always; }; echo $? $a'

However, an actual interrupt with ^C will still exit the whole shell,
in that specific example.

This is an entirely different case.  zle_main.c:getbyte() calls
zexit() directly if raw_getbyte() returns zero.  This is probably a
bug, or it at least should be documented that when ZLE receives EOF it
behaves as if "exit" had been called. IGNORE_EOF will cause it to
retry 20 times, but it never stops getting EOF because the tty has in
fact closed the descriptor.
