  Only initialize libedit when necessary

  The code path to support units conversions from the command line
  need not initialize neither libedit nor the history.  Therefore, only do
  that when in interactive mode.

  This hides the issue reported in PR bin/201167 whereby running commands
  of the form 'echo "$(units ft in)"' would corrupt the terminal.  The real
  issue causing the corruption most likely still remains somewhere.
