[New-bugs-announce] [issue6786] readline and zero based indexing

New submission from James <purpleidea at gmail.com>:

why is it that the zeroth readline history item is seemingly always
none. I would expect this to support zero-based indexing in python, but
perhaps I have missed some detail in readline somewhere. Cheers,
