Yes, but this is on a level higher. The picolisp line editor avoids any
dependence on terminal control sequences (termcap or terminfo), by
relying solely on spaces and backspaces to format the line.

In any way, instead of completely disabling 'led', you might change the
function 'chgLine' in "lib/led.l", and replace "^H" ((prin "^H") in
three places) with some other character which is suitable for acme.
