Took me some time, but yes, I managed it.

In comparison to my last patch I made the following changes:

a) I had missed that for colours > 7 the termcap interface was used.
This is now unnecessary as the termcap attribute is returned whenever
it makes sense to use this interface. That the colours > 7 check was
still there broke true colours, so I removed that and now it's working
fine.

b) zle_highlight sequences are added to customize the true colour
escape sequences: fg_24bit_start_code, fg_24bit_delim and the
corresponding bg properties. For the end of the sequence, I used the
normal end_codes as they appear to be usually the same.

c) for the def case in set_colour_attribute, the true colour branch is
removed. I don't see any way that could be triggered, and having a
true colour version of "restore the default colour" doesn't really
make sense in my opinion.

d) move the is_default_zle_highlight logic to the place where the
zle_highlight array is checked. This has the advantage that one
doesn't need the string comparisons as the logic is implicit: if
zle_highlight is not NULL bypass termcap, else use it. This has also
the advantage that with "unset zle_highlight" you go back to using
termcap; to accomplish the same thing, you currently have to set the
codes you changed back to their default.

There is one last problem, I don't know how to address best: once you
use zle_highlight, you don't get the default sequences back if you
remove an entry from the array or unset it.

The X04 test passes as well. With TERM=xterm-direct only the two
nearcolor module tests fail, which only make sense for 256 colour
terminals. So everything looks good to me. I have tried to make the
test more terminal agnostic, but that is something for the next email.

Best regards,
Daniel
