I fired up my beta copy of Panther and looked at libedit.  It doesn't
seem to export any of the symbols required to be a plausible readline
substitute --- no readline(), none of the rl_xxx variables, etc.  Nor
are any of the associated header files present.

So, no, you can't use this instead of readline.  I'm a bit confused
why not though, since other people claim to have working configurations
like that.  Perhaps what Apple is shipping is an ancient, un-featureful
version of libedit?  Or something unrelated that happens to have the
same name?
