Looking at the .zshrc I’ve made, I would suggest the following changes to reduce its length and complexity:
* Move zrestart() to an autoloadable function. This is done. I just need to push it in.
* Move the prompt code into a theme that can be customized easily. This is done, too, and will be pushed.
* Move Home, End, Alt-Right/Left & Alt-Delete key bindings to the ZLE code and menuselect Alt-Up/Down + Page Up/Down keybindings to complist. This not done yet.
* Fix the way Tab behaves in complist interactive mode. Not done yet.
* Move the rest of the keybinding code to an autoloadable function. Not done.
* Make a “theme” system for compsys. We could put a couple of different flavors of comp config into comp themes: one for menu select haters, ;) one that uses `interactive` type-ahead, etc. Alternatively, split the settings into several modular, autoloadable functions, so users can mix and match. Neither of these is done yet.
* Create an autoloadable function for the pushd/cd widgets. Done & will be pushed.
