Re: bin/14578 (sh(1) doesn't explain emacs editing mode)

Synopsis: sh(1) doesn't explain emacs editing mode

Since we got editline(7) (almost a year ago now) we finally have the
tools to deal with the last remaining issue in this PR.

The sh(1) man page has been updated to say:

     sh uses the editline(3) library.  See editline(7) for a list of the
     possible command bindings, and the default settings in emacs and vi

(with a ref to editline(7) in the SEE ALSO section too, of course).

I think this is enough to finally close this ancient PR.  Do you agree?

ps: there is still a reference to emacs(1) in the text (not a SEE ALSO)
but I think that's harmless, and people who want to use emacs editing
mode in sh (poor lost souls) probably will also have emacs installed
and so have an emacs(1) to refer to.
