[marto]: Eily, there's actually a lot of good discussion on the topic in the HN link choroba posted

[Corion]: I think you need to load Readline in the debugger, but I don't know how
[Corion]: Yay, invitation for a team-building workshop, with a team of 100 people :-/
[Eily]: marto after an additional read I started to see the light actually. And choroba's link was helpful as well :)
[Corion]: I'll send my colleague who doesn't yet know the people there, and I'll do production duty instead.
