Actually, that calls into question the whole approach again.

Or they should defer to the earlier level.

I'm now thinking that ZZText might *not* be the place to do referential
text. Rather, we should have ZZCell have a function that returns a
RString, and a fairly low-level way to do this but also have access to the
contents inside the ZZ space, one span per cell.
