Just curious: Why?
If you have libreadline installed, why would you want libeditline
(remembering of course you can install libreadline in place of
libeditline on your own systems).
Of course, throughout this discussion I am assuming that libeditline is
fully ABI compatible, something I haven't investigated myself. I would
be surprised if it is not the case.
Also, I seem the package description of libeditline says that it has
fewer features. Any ideas what features it lacks?
