    amk> editline-fix : is the problem and fix described still relevant?

I sort of doubt it.  I'd delete it.  Editline has changed in the last six
years.  I haven't linked Python with it in nearly that long.  There are
other command line completion libraries available as well.  I just stumbled
upon tecla:


which seems to be actively maintained.  Anybody tried it?  It has an
X11-style license and is a little over half the size of libreadline.  Unlike
editline, it appears it doesn't attempt to conform to readline's API in the
areas the two libraries overlap.  Doesn't look like it supports history
files either.
