I think the issue is that I don't necessarily want the history to follow
the tty.  I tend to prefer it to follow the application -- and that creates
its own weirdness.  Sometimes I want my shells to share a history, sometimes
I want it to be one each.

I do like the basic idea of providing a general interface, but I'm not sure
how to reconcile it with the large amount of code tied to specific libraries.
