This idea was certainly crossing my mind too. This way we would insure
ourserves from a number of weird problems associated with having two
version of libreadline.{a,so} and appropriate similarly named headers
in /usr and /usr/local. Ports that can work with libeditNG then could
be properly tailored to link with it instead of GNU libreadline. The
only drawback here is that authors of tools, which need to be linkable
with both libeditNG and GNU libreadline (think about vinum) will have to
do some black #ifdef magick, but that's life...
