Jörgen,

Thank you for your explanations.

So according to me:
 - the advantage of your patch is that, when we define a function or a 
class in the shell, the history is not cluttered anymore with 
meaningless chunk of code (the various line of the function that have no 
meaning outside it).
 - the drawback is that if you did something wrong in the middle of a 
function definition you have no chance to correct it using the shell 
history.

Tell me if I'm right.

Regards,
Vivian.
