[at which point we'll start having problems with cooked mode!]

I'd prefer to change something in emacs, because it's just not
reasonable to try and figure out what the underlying program is and do
something program-specific.

For most programs that just use cooked mode, we could probably figure
out someway to do, but for programs that are directly interpreting
control characters like readline, I'm not sure what to do.

Does bash _always_ use readline, regardless of the state of the tty, or
is there some tty state that makes it think `something's funny, I'd
better not use readline' (I'd think -echo would be a clue, but I guess
not)?
