Hm.  I don't recall whether we still pretend to support pre-4.0 readlines.
The "undocumented" bit actually bothers me rather more.  I guess what we
can do is wrap the code in "ifdef RL_PROMPT_START_IGNORE" to keep from
blowing up if it's not present.

Not really; so far we've gotten away with "do like you see established
contributors doing".

Doesn't matter.  We ask for "diff -c" format (plain diff is unsafe if
there have been any other changes in the files, and diff -u is harder to
read, at least in the opinions of those who are likely to review PG
patches).  How you package it in your message is your choice.  If you
use a mail program that might munge whitespace or linebreaks then an
attachment is probably the safest plan.

In general a diff against CVS HEAD will be the least pain to apply.  In
this particular case it won't matter much, since those files haven't
changed recently.
