I can get all the GPLed copies I need to, thank you.  If you want to
make it a business to sell copies of Readline with a _written_
_guarantee_ that the recipient may link each copy to proprietary
software of his own choosing and redistribute the combined product for
profit, and that you will reimburse him for any damages resulting from
the FSF suing him for compliance, go ahead.

According to you, it should be a sure-fire income opportunity for you.
Without such a guarantee, your offer is worthless.
