Note, though, that it's not as easy as it sounds. For example, note
that the very useful and simple behaviour of doing up-arrow and
bringing the last line, is not handled by Python code, but by the
external library readline.

My point is: you can propose a lot of things (I surely will love
autocompletion and better block management), but how would you achieve
that in a multiplatform way?
