My main (error) reason for recalling a multiline command in bash is to
insert a command I forgot to include, which is probably why I detest the way
bash 2.x does command recall.  Does IDLE allow new lines to be inserted into
multiline commands or is it restricted to editing the existing lines?

ESR is probably pretty damn good at curses in Python by now.  Perhaps he can
blend readline and curses together into a "simple" multiline command recall
editor... ;-)
