... and it is part of the readline package!  See  
System.Console.SimpleLineEditor.  Needless to say, it is far from  
perfect, but does give some basic facilities.  There are lots of ways  
it could be extended.

(I haven't checked, but I really hope the cabal mechanisms for  
configuring the readline package do not require a working actual- 
readline installation, because SimpleLineEditor is explicitly designed  
to workaround its absence!  It is supposed to provide a uniform  
interface regardless of whether readline is there.)
