If we are thinking of building a readline/editline/other line editor package as part of LLDB, we might take a look around and see if there aren't any other non GPLv3 line editors we would rather use. 

I have heard that zsh might have a nice line editor that could be used. I am not sure how well libedit stacks up to competing line editors.
