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.
