I only have one suggestion to add to what others have already commented
on; this should be positioned after the chapter on using readline, and
before all the appendices.  As it stands, the TOC might look a bit
strange, with a regular chapter after the last appendix and just before
the index.  Alternatively, it could be an appendix (using @appendix)
but appendices seem better for meta-issues like installation, so I'd
rather see it be a chapter.  (Yes, that suggests that the Using History
Interactively appendix should be a chapter instead, which I would
like to do too.)

Thanks for doing this!  I love it when other people do my job... :-)

I'd like to see it go in there sooner rather than later too.  Otherwise
you're introducing discrepancies between the manual and the documentation,
and everybody is confused - witness the lack of doc for the tracing
commands still, some two years after they were added...
