I haven't started to work on it so haven't yet decided, but I thought,
for example, some variable like `rl_timeout_point' to which one can
store a time point that the editing times out. Or, if that's not
acceptable, prepare a new function `readline_with_timeout
(prompt,timeout_duration)'? Anyway, I need to carefully see the
existing interface of readline and want to think of what is the
natural interface for this new one.
