I think I am persuaded that this is the most important goal: stability
of the API and package interface, for existing clients of readline.  If
individual projects would like to migrate from using readline to using
editline, then those are the ones that should pay the small amount of
pain (in using CPP, package configurations, etc) to manage the change.

Anyone else should be totally unaffected.
