Fair enough, though I'd be happy to change that as well. :)
So perhaps $PYTHONHISTORY should specify the file name, and the
filename and size can also be set from the $PYTHONSTARTUP script if
desired, and a function call can be made to load the history?
I'd prefer to *only* need to add a line or two to my $PYTHONSTARTUP
script, and not set yet more environment variables, if at all
