`make linux` or `make macosx` builds Lua with readline support.  

However, `` does not have readline support.  I can see why: the file 
associated with `io.stdin` might not be one for which editing makes sense.

I dream of this:

file:read('*e'): reads the next line skipping the end of line, 
  returning nil on end of file, applying editing.

Problem is, I'm not a patch virtuoso.
