 | >Description:
 | As the man page of editline(3) and editrc(5), the parameter "EL_SETTY"
 | can configure the terminal setting.  By using this parameter, program
 | must be able to setup -ISIG not to receive SIGINT by Ctrl-C like
 | followings:
 |      el_set(el, EL_SETTY, "-d", "-isig", NULL);
 | but this doesn't work.
 | In tty_rawmode() of lib/libedit/tty.c, the library seems to skip
 | applying the clear/set flag bits from "EL_SETTY" if the current
 | termios flags is not changed from cached flags.
 While I like the refactoring of all tis duplicated code, the removal
 of the conditional setting is undesirable. It is meant to prevent the
 user for altering the state of the tty from a 3rd party. Consider using
 the editor in the shell (which is used in /bin/sh). vi crashes and leaves
 the tty in non-canonical, no echo mode. With your change, the changes
 from vi get immediately reflected in the editor. What we want instead,
 is to recognize the settings from setty as valid, and reflect those
 unconditionally. Perhaps that code is broken.
