Doesnt' seem to work, at least under *nix.
But hold off a bit :) I'm not going to add every possible readline
option to the default config file. After all, that's what it's there
for: so _users_ can tweak things to their heart's content.
I only have a few generic defaults to give an out of box usage which is
efficient. Power users can just open the file and play with it til the
cows come home, but I'm not going to go much further.
