    is it technically feasible to link pdftex with readline ?

It's technically *possible*, of course, but no, I wouldn't call it
"feasible".  It would create a nontrivial and problematic dependency (as
we've just been discussing in another thread), while benefitting
extremely few users. So, sorry, but no. -k
