I also wanted this feature for a long time.
And I agree that it is rather simple to just remove the \n when writing to the
readline history file, but I don't think that's what everybody wants. I
think that people want to preserve the original formatting...
So in that case the solution can be just putting some symbol instead of \n
in the history file, and during the loading of that file replace it back (that symbol can be zero byte for example). But I'm not sure that people will like that solution too.

A zero byte is probably a pretty bad choice. Some other low valued byte (e.g. \x01 ) would probably work better.

And I agree that format preservation is highly desirable.
