I don't understand what you're getting at. Any user of readline can make
a mapping of ^O to do something. Bash is just where I discovered that it
doesn't work. As it is, ^O is interpreted by the operating system, and
readline will never see it.

You can't expect users of readline to somehow "fix" readline's tty
handling so that their mapping starts working...
