Very late in this thread, but if you still remember ... :)

It may not be ideal, but Ctrl-U does clear the line completely.
That's what I use now.  As Brian said, there's no really easy way,
that we know of, of implementing the behavior we had before re. Ctrl-C
and typing, while having the new design that avoids threads.

Ctrl-U does the job fine (it's the readline 'clear line' keybinding)
and I've become used to it.  If you can propose an improvement within
the current design, we'll be happy to include it though.  We just
haven't found any.
