True. The last version that Pedro Lucas made (which I have yet to
package for Debian; I'm on it) implements its own history and command
completion functions independently from GNU readline. I still think
it's substandard myself, but it's a vast improvement over not having
that functionality at all. However, P.L. seemed unaware of John
Swenson's work in the C++ octave_server class, and he thought it was
interesting when I pointed it out to him. He may change his approach
to QtOctave in the next release. Terminal emulation may not be
necessary at all.
