Hi all,

On my system (WinXP Pro, Cygwin net release) using ghc 5.04.3, ghci does 
not seem to use readline for interactive editing from the command line 
prompt, while hugs does.

I find interactive command line editing invaluable in an interactive 
interpreter, particularly during testing.  Is there any way to enable 
readline support in ghci?  I had a look through the users guide, but 
didn't find anything.
