The way I am imagining this is it's sorta like regular highlighting,
only instead of doing it with just yellow you have a whole bunch of
pens. So then you can go back and say "Do X to all the bits I marked
red". Does that make sense?
Except of course, with ZigZag, the "colours" are m.1 m.2 ... etc.
The part I'm not sure about is the marklist part ... I feel like I'm
being dumb. "A separate list on d.marklist" -- how do I do that?
Also, what keys would I set it to? Or no keys at all? At the moment
I just have M and m mapped to marking and unmarking in m.1.
Feeling proud she's half-implemented mark when
she didn't think she could.
