To fully quote from TLS's statement and your reply:
In the direction you seem to be headed lies the true and vivid idiocy of
the Debian shell, which is *larger* than our shell (depending on platform
and compiler flags, etc.) yet strips out functionality every other modern
shell offers, such as command line editing -- for purely doctrinaire
reasons, since after all, these features were in what they started with.

It does not strip functionality, it never implemented it. If you want a
modern shell's features, use a modern shell.

Look at bin/48875 and judge yourself.
