Sorry, I misread your post. I meant that trying that with a readline module
compiled against GNU readline interferes with typing "b". So, unfortunately, you
can't just issue both commands hoping that the library will just ignore the

that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had
an underlying truth."
