Suggestion: when reading .inputrc, update the stty settings to match
as closely as possible, so that re-reading the same stty settings for
the next command won't change anything.  That way, .inputrc wins
(persistently) over the original stty settings, but later changes to
stty settings still win over .inputrc.
