The command it runs comes from a specific editor zstyle, $VISUAL or
$EDITOR, all of which ought to only ever be set to a text editor. It's
always possible that someone shoots themself in the foot in this manner
and it was worth considering. I'd not worry overly unless such a setup
appears to be default for some OS/distribution.

The function already looks to see if it has vim or emacs. Perhaps it
could check for open/xdg-open. I couldn't find a mention of the editor
style in the documentation but if there, a warning could be attached

Anyway, I have pushed the patch.
