bind a key to a custom function that does something with the command line, but I
do not say that this is impossible: I switched to zsh when I had three aliases,
two binds and no functions in my bashrc, so I do not have enough experience in
configuring bash. In zsh I do not use normal/insert modes, but have some vim-
like keybindings: <C-o> that can execute some commands in «normal» mode, <C-r>*,
a bunch of «,*» mappings. If you want to compare, try asking on stackoverflow
how to imitate vim's <C-o> in bash while having a emacs keys, based on those
answers I could yield more useful comparison.
I also know, that in zsh you may setup as many modes as you want: that indicator
was based onto the fact that zsh was changing its keymap when moving between
vicmd/viins, so it is not something hard-coded like in bash.
In some recent topics discussed on zsh mailing list there was an experimental
implementation of dynamic higlighting (though it was capable almost only for
higlighting command as alias/command/builtin/function). Can you imagine
something like that implemented without patching in bash?
