More likely, they'll just use editline. Since that's what Wontshare's
software is built against and distributed with, there doesn't seem much
reason to switch to readline.
If there is -- if Wontshare in some way tries to enforce the use of
readline, then this non-distributable product is being distributed, and
the step where the software is linked to editline is just a smoke screen.
