 readline support in wpa_cli is not enabled by default because it bloats 
 the system with very little gain.  It is trivial to have a local 
 configuration that adds it w/o touching the source code but once added 
 in the way proposed it is not possible to disable it w/o modification.
 I believe the original PR was submitted by brix at .  I recently asked him 
 to review it and decide whether he wanted to commit the change; 
 otherwise close the PR.
