Default Release of Linenoise, a small BSD licensed alternative for GNU readline

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...re-960048.html

Quote:
Salvator Sanfilippo, also known as Antirez, has released Linenoise, a compact and BSD licensed alternative to the GPL licensed readline.

Sanfilippo, who recently joined VMware to work on development of his open source distributed key/value store Redis, has created the library after finding that existing solutions took between 20K and 30K of memory, an amount he found unacceptable for smaller utilities.

Only program I've really complained about lack of readline support has been the non GNU versions of ed I've used, but this sounds like goood news, at least for those using suitable terminals. (Yes, I don't like GNU readline.)

Has there been any mention of moving it into the source tree, on any of the BSDs?
