Re: Wanted: readline-no-echo

Thanks.  It works real groovy.

I can see a potential problem with XJ313's specification for
echo streams here.  Presumably a frame pane is (or will be)
an echo stream, and yet there are times when you want to read
a string from a frame pane without echoing (e.g. passwords).
There might be a reason to add a new reader control variable,
*read-echo*, for this case.

Now, no one is going to want to turn off input echoing very
often, but I think *read-echo* would be a far sight more
useful than *read-base*.

Just daydreaming...
