I think we'd all be happy to see the appropriate hooks added. The
important thing is that the hooks are placed at the right point. I'd
like to see that the IDE uses the octave history and readline facilities
rather than have to reimplement these in an independent and probably
incompatible manner. If one of you propose a set of hooks, we could
review them and start on the path to actually getting them included...
