Did you consider its interaction with \e? Editing the query_buffer
with \e will leave that query prefixed with \e in the history. That
wasn't the case before your patch.

Also, using \e several times on a query without sending it (i.e.
without a semicolon) will yield a history entry of a concatenation of
old query buffers.
