you only do this at the appropriate times. Setting a variable and
checking for it would work, but you have to make sure to unset it if
the command line is abandoned as well. We need
CmdLineEnter/CmdLineLeave and v:cmdexecuted or some such, so that we
can tell if the line was executed or not. Or perhaps even better:
the *Pre autocmd one can perhaps change the command line in some way
before executing it. With *Post one can do stuff after it, like
:matching. *Leave would be called when it is abandoned, although
perhaps the name suggests other cases as well?
Anyway, good night.
