What are the values of mad_key and what do they mean? In grepping
through the source I came up with the following but it might not be
complete because there's no single place that defines them. I appended
my guesses about what goes into each.

^:	???
R:	???
_:	whitespace
X:	some kind of word. Maybe it isn't quoted?
=:	some kind of quoted thing.
E:	regex match expression

q:	start quoted region
Q:	end quoted region

z:	start regexp replacement marker
Z:	end regexp replacement marker
