This seems to work OK on the test file level but the documentation is pretty 
grim.  Also support seems to be spread into several, discontinuouis sites.

The need for readline or something like it is so universal it should be 
supported under a more general license.  Can you imagine using 'bash' or any 
of the other shell programs without it?  Usage applies to any command line 
program.  Just like the program I am working on: without it if you make an 
error typing in a line, you have to do the whole line over; if you made an 
error on the last command, again, type it over.  Without it you can't back up 
and make a quick fix.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due
to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.
