I completely agree that, at the least on the Mac, using editline is
the best solution (as long all necessary functionality is supported).
I am wondering, though, whether you are testing on Tiger or Leopard.
When looking at the readline-emulation API of editline after upgrading
to Leopard, I had the impression that it included much more
functionality than it did on Tiger.
