I think I'm misunderstanding you. I thought rl_callback_read_char was
some place where rl was always returning and thus a good place to hook
the update. If not, is there any place, say a main event loop, like
that? I don't know anything about rl internals.

Regarding ipython: it's already using prompt toolkit and it's moving
very fast so I don't think many users will be running legacy versions
for a long time.

I was thinking you might have meant that while you were typing it. :)
