bash readline

hi dd,

i really like the readline in bash - it seems bash is "vi complete" in vi mode.

now, i haven't looked closely, but i think the good vi mode is a patch
on (bash?) readline in debian?
in centos, i can't "df;" and delete up to next semicolon.

but on ubu^H^H^Hdebian, rlwrap uses the vanilla readline and it's
really annoying that i can't get the same line editing features with
rlwrap (and, i expect, readline).

what are my options?  patch readline?

ta, jack.
