I think the answer for (1) is 'yes'.  The answer for (2) depends on how big 
it is - if it's big, I don't think it makes sense to include it in PHP, as 
it's fairly esoteric.  Including a pointer to where you can download it 
would be better (assuming you can download it in a way that is then usable 
by your code..?)
As for 3, if we find a way that works to use the BSD readline clone, then 
dropping GNU readline support is fine.
