Not in the 0.10 series. That branch's history only records by line, not by
block, so that information is simply lost. In 0.11, we do record history by
block, but we currently add it back to readline by line. I'm not sure why we do
this; it may be unintentional. I would agree that I would prefer it to be by
block. Perhaps that could be configurable.
