Actually, I'm not sure what difference the readline version makes --
why would you need it?

Also, I'm not sure that the configure check is enough -- it's possible
that readline lives in a non-standard place where configure can't find
it but ppointed to by the Setup file.

I think it's just not worth it.

Please don't.
