I haven't looked into how much of it is libedit itself, but at least with
the current state of IPython deployed on top of it, I consider readline a
dependency of IPython for my personal use. IPython with libedit is not at
all acceptable in my experience.
It's been a while (IP 0.9?) since I tried it out, though.
