As a Mac user, I've pretty much given up on getting readline to work.
It's been a lot less stressful for me to just rip out readline from
whatever I'm trynig to build, and either go without fancy input or hit
it with a hammer until Haskeline fits what they're doing.

Most folks using readline are doing anything too fancy with it. Would
you be interested in a shim module providing some of the basic
readline interface but built against haskeline?
