That works fine. Anyone can try it out by:
autoload -Uz zsh-newuser-install
(add -f to the end if there's already a .zshrc there.)

I'll check that in.

That would deserve another "snicker", but $zd isn't necessarily the current
directory at that point, and we'd like to keep the directory after the
function exits... still, it's certainly a good idea to fix directories
under $HOME and I've done that in the patch.

This is the message you get when you enter the appropriate menu, so it's
explained... but maybe I could set the initial state to "Recommended" and
the default so that it picks "bindkey -e" unless you explicitly tell it not
to? (This is what happens in the history menu---if you pick that option it
sets your HISTSIZE and SAVEHIST to 1000 unless you explicitly edit them.)
Default editing configuration
The keys in the shell's line editor can be made to behave either
like Emacs or like Vi, two common Unix editors. If you have no
experience of either, Emacs is recommended. If you don't pick one,
the shell will try to guess based on the EDITOR environment variable.
Usually it's better to pick one explicitly.
# (1) Change default editing configuration
# bindkey -e (no value set)
# (0) or (q) Return to main menu (no changes made yet)

turned off simply by removing this script. The module can be removed
entirely from the configured shell by editing the line starting
-"name=zsh/newuser" int the config.modules file, which is generated in the
+"name=zsh/newuser" in the config.modules file, which is generated in the
top level distribution directory during configuration: change the line to
