I don't know what is really safe in what respect, but
it really doesn't look that much compatible :
$ objdump -T /lib/libreadline.so.4 | grep Base | wc -l
$ objdump -T debian/libeditline0/usr/lib/libeditline.so.0 | grep Base | wc -l
Linking libeditline to every program as a replacement of libreadline
may cause some "Missing symbols " errors.
Very hard to detect, when filed as bugs.
