364 days later... here's a patch that I think correctly adds readline
support to whatnowproc... some advice please...

(1) Is it really safe to wedge this in everywhere like Peter Maydell
asked for back on 12/21/2010??  

(2) What's the nmh native way to do...
  char *dupstr (char *s) {
    char *r;
    r = xmalloc (strlen (s) + 1);
    strcpy (r, s);
    return (r);

(3) I'm not exactly sure why there are parens in some of the option syntax
listings like "(de)tach [-n]".  I suspect they're indicating "de" is acceptable
(in a non-readline-world), and thus this code (in a readlin eworld) should
remove the parens?

(4) I'm not motivated to also auto-complete switches.  Perhaps that's okay.
Perhaps someone else can add that.
