Debating on writing Editline bindings
Message ID:
At the moment, bindings for Readline and Linenoise are available, which 
are mainly used for making the REPL more convenient to use. Editline is 
a BSD-licensed alternative to the two that's part of the userland by 
default on FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and NetBSD. Having bindings for Editline 
would be more convenient for BSD users, since they don't have to install 
any additional libraries to use the REPL more comfortably. Would this be 
worthwhile writing? It fills a pretty narrow niche for users and I'm not 
sure how useful it would be to have.
