This is nice, but for some things I'm thinking about, I'd want
readline.  After the gnome zvt suggestion, I'm wondering how hard it
might be to wire that up to gnucash so that it pops up when you press
a button.  I need to think more about when it would be safe to call
gh_eval_str on the forms from the guile terminal sub-process, and
about whether or not readline would actually work there.
