Thanks everybody. However, I believe that using a modified readline library is
debatable, mainly because it adds the burden of keeping this library
up-to-date to the GHC maintenance process. Having a renamed library is one
thing and it does not seem that also modifying the contents of the library is
an improvement. For me to consider this idea, it should be the very last
solution, every other stone having been turned. And I certainly believe that
stones remain to be turned in this case.
I would very much like to hear your comments to this.
In addition, if you must replace this framework with another with different
contents, I would suggest the use of some versioning scheme. Otherwise is
seems that a lot of confusion could result.
Thanks and best regards
