crap... I was hoping for a switch or something.

The program is supposed to be an interpreter that includes unicode IO
support, and I wanted to use readline or editline or similar for it.
Is there any library you know of that would have that kind of an
ability while still using unicode? Between readline and unicode,
unicode is the more important, but a readline ability would still be
very nice.
