I think it isn't easily possible. Readline really wants a tty, but this
is just a plain socket connection.
I really think you are better off just implementing a console in your
GUI, and doing the various editing things there.

Actually, I guess interoperating with gdb's history would be nice. It
would mean that users could "set history save on" and then have their
commands show up in Eclipse as well.
I think this would need some new MI commands. Specifically, you'd need
an MI request to fetch previous history items.
If you want this, would you mind filing a bug report?

Ok, I see. We've added some events in this last release cycle.
Please file bugs for what you need. These are usually not too hard to
