The difference between *COMTAB* and *STANDARD-COMTAB* is that the
former is a variable that is always lambda-bound to the CURRENT command
table, while the latter is a constant (that is, its value is a
constant), namely the "standard" COMTAB.  The standard COMTAB should be
modified if you want your changes to be reflected in all invocations of
the editor: not only in ZMACS but in anything else that uses ZWEI, say,
to read in a line of text with edit-processing.  I don't know if
anything besides ZMACS uses ZWEI these days.

I don't know why it isn't working though; you'd have to find out\n from someone at MIT who is keeping up with the changes.
