That gives you line editing and history, but doesn't give you custom
completions like Mike Pall's readline power patch or the
CompleteWithReadline extension Steve linked to. With these systems,
it's possible to  `string.<tab><tab>` to get completions. rlwrap would
not be able to provide this functionality.
