Greetings!  I was considering putting in a long outstanding
improvement before pushing out 2.6.2, and want to consult the list.  

Briefly, readline support should be enabled automatically when
compiled in (without the need to invoke (si::init-readline)), should
not allocate additional memory with malloc as it does now, and when
doing completion should complete against the symbol list in the
current package.  I think I know how to do this, and its pretty
simple.  However, I'm not sure whether this should be the external
symbols of the current package, external and internal, or these and
the inherited symbols.  I'm leaning toward external symbols of the
current package and its package use list be default, with a possible
alternate behavior when one or more colons appear.  Thoughts?

Take care,
