When read-only is nil, process-echoes functions normally, and I get only
one input echoed; i.e. the duplicate input *is* deleted (but the prompt
is erasable).  So, by default, I have the same usability as before
(modulo my hacked up idlw-roprompt advise functions), but am looking
forward to using prompt-read-only.
