Unless the calling application is careful, this code will leave readline
in an inconsistent state in the presence of a longjmp(). It relies on
private state kept local to a single call to readline().
I am leaning towards not including it for that reason.
There should be no reason that the application cannot remove the callback
handler and re-add it before calling readline synchronously, as Daniel or
H.J. suggested. The application is the only one in a position to know
which is right.
